INTRODUCTION. 



IN presenting this the fifth edition of the Hmse-breeders' Handbook to the 
breeders of the thoroughbred horse in the United Kingdom so soon 
after the edition of last year there is no need to make any apology, because 
it is in their own interest this volume is published. It was, indeed, demanded, 
owing to the advent to the stud of Persimmon (who must so far be regarded 
as the horse of the century), together with St. Frusquin, Sir Visto, Florizel II., 
Victor Wild, Savile (who has made a great name in South Africa), and several 
other distinguished fresh aspirants for stud honours, whose owners recognising 
the value and usefulness of having their pedigrees and performances properly 
set before breeders, desired its publication. But another and still more 
potent reason is that the first introduction to the Horse-breeders' Handbook, 
embracing a full and succinct account of the rise and progress of the British 
Stud (and which will be found in Part II. of this volume), was written 
several years anterior to the issuing of the revised first volume of the 
" General Stud Book," and owing to the increased knowledge obtained from 
that publication it required several corrections and additions. Prior to the 
appearance of the revised volume little was known of the female origin of 
the British stud, except by the few who made pedigree their constant study ; 
but tliat work, compiled with a care and accuracy quite wonderful, has 
thrown a flood of light on the early breeding of our racehorses. 

The first nineteen pages of the revised first volume of the " Stud Book " con- 
tains information, not alone interesting to the breeder, but to the public 
generally ] for there is given an account of seventy-eight of the earliest known 
mares with their progeny, very few of which were previously printed as brood 
mares, though they appear in the miscellaneous pedigrees at the end of previous 
editions. To these the editors have added the names of ten other mares, 
whose breeding and progeny are given further on in the body of the work ; 
and from these eighty-eight mares all the thorough-bred horses of the present 
day descend in the female line. And further, the editors have added to no 
fewer than forty-two of them the names of their most distinguished progeny, 
whence it is easy for the student of pedigree to find out the Arab or Barb 
mare from whom any of the horses so named is descended ; and studmasters 
who require to know the original mares from which any of the principal 
stallions in the " Stud Book " up to the year 1890 is descended, can gain that

information with but little trouble, by means of a well-arranged index, filling 
the four last pages of the revised first volume of the " Stud Book," which is 
altogether an admirable work and must have been one of Herculean laboui- 
to the compilers. Through the information gained therefrom, Part II. of 
this edition of the Horse-breeders' Handbook has been corrected throughout, 
and there have been added to it the pedigrees and performances of twelve 
more of the principal fathers of the British stud, which has made the work 
far more valuable for pedigree reference. 

The added celebrities include Pot8os, King Fergus, Filho-da-Puta, 
Hambletonian, Cotton, Mulatto, Glencoe, Voltaire, Vedette, Voltigeur, The Flying 
Dutchman, and Thormanby, names to be found so frequently with those of 
Eclipse, Herod, Matchem, Whisky, Gohanna, Orville, Waxy, Web, Woful, Wire, 
Whisker, Whalebone, Tramp, Blacklock, Touchstone, Launcelot, Birdcatcher, 
Faugh-a-Ballagh, Harkaway, Newminster, Stockwell, Rataplan, Weatlierbit, 
Buzzard, Sir Peter, Phantom, Walton, Selim, Castrel, Rubens, Irish Escape, Bob 
Booty, Siveetmeat, Buccaneer, Trum,pator,^ Soothsayer, Melbourne, and Solon, in 
the pedigrees, not only of all the thoroughbred hoi'ses in the United Kingdom, 
but the world over, that these insertions were absolutely called for to make 
the work what it professes to be — the Horse-breeders' Handbook. The pedi- 
grees and performances of the last thirty-eight named celebrities will be 
found repeated in Part II., and it will be there seen that the only change of 
any consequence is in the pedigree of Whisky, which, having to be drawn 
afresh, has been traced back to the thirty-two Arab or Barb mares from 
whom he is descended, and their names given in italics at the end of each 
section ; a rule that has been followed out in giving the pedigrees of the 
twenty-two fresh aspirants for stud honours to be found in the First Part of 
this volume and which have been printed for the fii-st time. In both sections 
of the work the pedigrees and performances of the newly added sires are 
given as far and as fully as space admitted, but unhappily owing to Part II. 
being in stereotype it was found impossible to place the newly added sires 
alphabetically, but they will be found grouped together in chronological order 
following Solon. To the pedigrees of these twelve sires, as well as to those 
of the twenty-two newly given in Part I., the attention of the breeder is 
specially directed ; because the addition of their Arab or Barb first parents 
given to each shows plainly the new-fangled method of breeding by figures, 
invented by Mr. Bruce Lowe, and now attempted to be forced, as it were, 
down the throats of studmasters, to be wholly worthless as a guide to 
breeding racehorses. 

Mr. Bruce Lowe's posthumous work, " Breeding Racehorses by the Figure 
System," is unquestionably a most plausibly written book, but every page of 
it gives evidence of its having been written by an intellect greatly weakened 
from the study of pedigree or some other cause ; and Mr. W. Allison, to 
whom he left the editing of it, has not only brought it out in a most taking 
fashion, but professing his belief in all its teaching, has pushed it in every 
direction with the faith of a true apostle. The work can nevertheless be 
reckoned up in two woi-ds, "presumption and assumption." Was it not a 
little presumptuous on the part of Mr. Lowe, after paying a visit to America 



INTR OD UCTION. 



to see what information he could pick up from breedei-s in the United States, 
to come all the way from the Antipodes to Europe to teach English and 
Irish studmasters how to breed racehorses — men to whose careful mating 
of blood stock the world chiefly owes the fine horses that are now to be found 
everywhere in its wide expanse? But let that pass. Mr. Lowe came to 
England with the intention of serving the breeders of the United Kingdom, 
and for that he is to be thanked, not blamed, however miserably he has failed 
in doing so. Why he failed is not far to seek. He assumed many things, 
without his assumptions having any foundation in fact. In his very first 
chapter he starts with the fallacy, long since exploded, that the foundation of 
the British stud rests chiefly with the Darley Arabian, the Byerly Turk, and 
Godolphin Barb, ignoring the fact that it had been laid long previous to their 
arrival in England, through the intermingling of the blood of the White and 
Yellow Turks, imported by Lord D'Arcy, with that of the Morocco Barb, 
imported by Lord Fairfax, the Leedes Arabian, and the Lister Turk, to none 
of whom does Mr. Bruce Lowe give any credit, dismissing them in the fol- 
lowing curt fashion : " Mr. Joseph Osborne contends that the merit of 
Eclipse was quite as much (if not considerably more) due to the ^ve strains 
of the Lister Turk than to the single strain of the Darley Arabian ; but by 
the same reasoning the admirers of UArcy's White Turk might put forward 
stronger claims for that horse seeing that his name occurs no fewer than nine 
times in the pedigree table of Eclijjse. But this line of reasoning would open 
up no end of argument, and at this distance from the efforts of early stud 
breeders the discussion could lead to no practical result." And this is Mr. 
Bruce Lowe's style of argument through the whole of his work. At the end 
of the same chapter speaking of the necessity of tracing the female lines to 
their " tap-roots," Mr. Bruce Lowe asserts, " that English breeders over- 
looked the importance of doing so until the last four or five years, or about 
the time Messrs. Weatherby issued the revised edition. No. 1 volume, of the 
English ' Stud Book.' " Now, this statement is mere assumption, and would 
be laughed at by the clever breeders of the early part of the century, all of 
whom knew very ^vell the importance of only breeding from mares of pure 
Arab or Barb descent, although none of them went the length of imputing 
all the goodness to a single " tap-root," as Mr. Lowe does in founding his 
" figure system." 

It is also fitting to notice here another of his assumptions. In his second 
chapter he states that " the four most successfvil breeders ever seen in 
England — the Duke of Grafton, Lords Jersey, Egremont, and Falmouth — 
were fully cognisant of the value of the mares descended from the three top 
lines of Trego^iwelVs Natural Barb, Burtmus Barb mare, and the dam of the 
Two True Blues, as the majority of their winners came from these three lines." 
That these noblemen bred successfully (and raced still more successfully) 
there can be no doubt, but it is very much open to question that they " were 
the best breeders ever seen in England " ; but it is a glaring assumption to 
say that, in mating their mares, any of them attributed to their Arab or 
Barb first dam the same value as Mr. Bruce Lowe. In Ireland, contempo- 
raries of the three first of these noble lords were the Marquis of Sligo, Lord 



INTR OD UCTION. 



Rossmore, and Mr. Watts, all large, accomplished, and successful breeders, 
whom the writer, in the many discussions on breeding, at which he was 
present and in which he took part, at the Turf Club, at Kildare, never heard 
any mention made of Mr. Bruce Lowe's " tap-roots," whence it is to be 
inferred that two, at least, of the noblemen above-named knew little or 
nothing about them. 

And here it may be well to explain what the " system " is. From his deep 
study of the " Stud Book " and " Racing Calendar " Mr. Lowe compiled a 
mass of statistics, by means of which he learned from what Arab or Barb 
mares (designated by him as " tap-roots,") the whole of the winners of our 
three principal classic races (Derby, Oaks, and St. Leger) are descended ; 
and he classifies these mares according to the number of classic races won by 
the descendants of each, giving precedence to the winners of the greater 
number. Thus he found the descendants of the Tregonioell N'attcral Barb had 
won the greatest number, and to her is given the figui'e No. 1, while to the 
Burton Barb mare, whose descendants won the next greatest number of 
classic races, is given the figure No. 2, and then follow the dam of the Tujo 
True Blues with the figure No. 3, and the Massey mare No. 4, and so on ; 
numerals being attached to the remaining thirty-eight Arab or Barb mares 
whose descendants have won some of the classic races, and by winning 
which Mr. Bruce Lowe gauges their value in breeding the horses of the 
present day. These mares he at once proceeds to designate as families ; 
why, or wherefore, he does not say. But this does not complete this extra- 
ordinary " system " ; he makes it still more complicated by dividing these 
families into winning and sire families. The first five families he calls 
" winning " or " feminine " families, because they have produced the most 
winners. Five other families he designates as " sire " families, and numbers 
them 3, 8, 11, 12, and 14, which he says he has found to be the most prolific 
in breeding great sires, and these he calls " sire " or " masculine " families ; 
and his contention is, that from the inter-breeding of the mnning with the 
sire families the best results are to be obtained. And it is here to be 
observed that he gives to No. 3 the character of being both a winning and a 
sire figure, thus making "confusion worse confounded." 

Then Mr. Bruce Lowe proceeds to elucidate his subject by devoting a 
whole page to TregonioelVs Natural Barb mare and her descendants, selecting 
Minting as his exponent. Now, this page might be likened to the well-known 
picture of the well-filled larder, where a fat buck hangs surrounded by all 
the good things so dear to the boji vivant. Instead of the fat buck, there is 
placed in the centre of the page the pedigree of Minting, showing at a glance 
his descent from the Tregonwell mare, and on either side are given the names 
of all the classic winners, both in England and at the Antipodes, descended 
from her ; a most inviting picture, doubtless made by Mr. Bruce Lowe with 
the intent of alluring breeders into a belief in his " figures." In making this 
arrangement, however, he quite overlooked the fact, whether intentionally or 
otherwise, that all thoroughbred horses, so called, have in their pedigrees 32 
quarterings, all of which have Arab or Barb " tap-roots," known or unknown ; 
but of this Mr. Bruce Lowe makes no m?ntion, making liis families rest 



INTR OD UCTION. 



entirely on the virtues, whcatever they may be, of the first dam, an arrange- 
ment that has in it neither sense or reason. This is shown by the fact that 
the Arab or Barb " tap-roots " in Minting' s pedigree comprise six strains of the 
Treyonwell Natural Barb, six of Boyal 7nares, foixr of the Old Morocco mare, 
and four of the Byerly Turk — Bustler mare, two each of the Burton Barb 
mare, the Rockwood — Bustler mare, the Oldfield mare, and the Old Scarborough 
mare, with one each of the Makeless Brimmer mare, the Hawker mare, and the 
Warlock Gallovxuj, while there is one unknown. Thus it \vill be seen that 
there are in Minting, besides hisfirst dam, five more strains of the Trego7ivjeU 
Natural Barb, which is the reason given by Mr, Bruce Lowe for selecting him 
" as the best living exponent of this line " ; but he nevertheless declines to give 
any credit to these five additional strains of the Tregonwell Natural Barb, or 
to the remaining twenty-six strains of Arab or Barb blood in his veins, which 
can hardly be accounted reasonable. Indeed, by his '* family " arrangement, 
the virtue of Mintings Tregonwell descent rests entirely with his " first dam,"^ 
It was a rather unfortunate selection for Mr. Bruce Lowe to make Minting 
(the greatest failure at the stud of any distinguished performer on the Turf, 
shice the days of Voltigeur) an exponent of his system ; and what reason he 
had for taking him in preference to Whalebone, Ladas, or some of the other 
numerous distinguished winners of classic races having the Tregonwell Natural 
Barb as their " first dam " can only be surmised. It is quite clear, however, 
that he could not have selected Whalebone ; because, had he done so, his pedigree 
Avould have shown the absurdity of the breeding system by figures, which he 
had evidently determined to establish at any cost. The Arab or Barb " first 
dams" from whom this great horse was descended, comprise ten strains from 
Royal mares, six unknown, four TregonwelVs Natural Barb, four Layton Barb 
mare, three Old Vintner mare, and one each from the Byerly Turk — Bustler 
mare, Thwaites' Dun mare, Old Woodcock, and the Oldfield mare, which with 
one from the Godolphin make up the thirty-two strains of Arab or Barb 
blood to be found in ihis pedigree. Of all Mr, Bruce Lowe's prominent 
figured " tap-roots " in this famous horse, there were consequently only four 
strains of the Tregomvell Natural Barb and four of the Layton Barb mares, 
the blood of both of whom united falls considerably short of ^^ hat he obtained 
from the Royal mares ; and the absurdity of the " figures " is further shown by 
the fact that nothing at all is known of the Arab or Barb descent of svich pro- 
minent factors in Whalebone's pedigree as Blaze, Cypron, Meliora, Herod, Tartar, 
and Traveller. But this may be better seen in the pedigree of Persimmon, 
which will be found worked out to his Arab or Barb origin, the extent of 
which compels its being inserted in map fashion. Before commenting on it, 
however, it is necessary to state that the writer takes quite an opposite view 
to that held by Mr. Bruce Lowe of one of the great " tap-roots " referred 
to in his work — viz,, the dam of the Two Ti'ue Blues. 

The " Stud Book " account of this famous mare appears at page 5 of the 
revised Vol, I., and follows that given of two other Byerly Turk mares, the 
first described of whom was the great-granddaughter of TregonwelVs Natwral 
Barb (Bruce Lowe's No. 1), while the breeding of the second is thus given 
with her produce.

Although Mr. Bruce Lowe makes this mare No. 3 in his chosen list of 
tap-roots, and considers her to be one of his gi'eatest families, his comments 
on her, given in the second chapter of his work, are very strange. He says : — 
" In the revised edition of Vol. I. of the ' Stud Book ' there is an attempt 
made to prove that the Byerly Turk mare, dam of the Two Trtie Blues {Stock- 
well's family in female line) is descended from the Burton Barb mare. There 
is not sufficient evidence to support this statement, and the family must be 
treated as separate luitil proved to the contrary." 

It will be seen above that Mr. Bruce Lowe was quite wrong in making 
this assertion, for the Editors of the " Stud Book " only state that the dam of 
the Two True Blues was conjectured to be the same Byerly Turk mare as pro- 
duced Boioes, Surley, and Whitefoot, leaving it quite an " open question " 
whether she was or was not. At this time of day this is a question not worth 
arguing ; but certainly both pedigrees furnish internal evidence that they are 
one and the same mare. It is quite probable, after the birth of Whitefoot 
in 1709 (see above), that Mr. Hutton, one of the largest breeders of that 
day, sold his dam to Mr. Bowes, as it will be noticed that True Bltie was 
foaled in 1710 from the ^^ Byerly Turk mare, whose breeding is not given," all 
of whose progeny were greys, thus taking after Surley in colour. A further 
reason for beHeving they were the same is that there is no pedigree given to 
the dam of the Two True Blues, which doubtless would have been given had 
she been bred differently. But be that as it may, in inserting the Arab and 
Barb tap-roots in the pedigrees of all the newly added sires given in this 
edition of the Horse-breeders' Handbook, the dam of the Tico True Blues is 
reckoned as a descendant of the Burton Barb mare — an arrangement that 
would hardly be cavilled at by Mr. Bruce Lowe, were he living ; for, considering 
the value he puts on this mare's blood, he would not like to see written after

Breeders are now invited to examine cai'efully the pedigree of Persimmon, 
the best horse of the day if not of the century, when they will see quite 
plainly that not the least value is to be attached to Mr. Bruce Lowe's teaching 
" how to breed racehorses by the figure system." The tap-roots of Persim- 
mon's pedigree, it will be seen, comprise twelve strains of the Burton Barb

mare, seven from Royal mares, four from the Tregonwell Natural Barb mare, 
two from the Byerly Turk — Bustler mare, and one each from the Oldjidd 
TTUtre, the Layton Barb mare, the Makeless — Brimmer mare, Davill's Old 
Woodcock, the Bockwood — Ilelmsley Turk Tnare, and the Oysterfoot mare, and 
one unknown. PersimmovUs first dam is " D'Arcy^s Black-legged Royal m.are," 
whence, according to the " system " (a one-legged one), that great horse derives 
all his goodness, and no doubt if Mr. Allison ever troubles breeders with 
another edition of " Breeding Eacehorses by the Figure System," he will be 
found credited to the Black-legged Royal mare, No. 7 in the " system," and who 
is also the first dam of West Au,stralian (the best horse ever trained by the 
famous " Wizard of the North," John Scott), Wild Dayrell, Donovan, and six 
other Derby winners, besides two winners of the Oaks and three winners of 
the St. Leger, including West Australian and Donovan. This at first sight 
would appear to favour the " system," but an examination of their pedigrees 
prove that they are all differently bred, though from the same tap-root. 

Persimmon's pedigree thus shows the uselessness of the " figures " ; for, 
though in-bred to the Burton Barb, of whom he inherits five strains through 
his sire, St. Simon, and .seven through his dam, Perdita II., the " system " 
would make him take all his goodness from D'Arcy's Black-legged mare, of 
whom he has in him but one single strain. Then it is quite past belief that, 
after a lapse of nearly two hundred years, and having percolated through the 
veins of all his ancestors as seen in Persimmons pedigiee (given in extenso 
elsewhere in this volume), there can be in that single strain the value 
attached to it by Mr. Bruce Lowe. It is sheer nonsense, and not worth 
a moment's consideration. 

But this is not the only one of his contentions that will not stand the 
light of reason. There was but little in his selecting the three " classic 
races " (so called) whereby to test the value of his " famihes," as several of 
them were won by very moderate horses, and not the best of their respective 
years. Many great races were run in England prior to their inauguration, 
the pedigrees of several of the winners of which are given in Part II. of this 
volume, by which it will be seen that his favourite "figured dames" play 
but a very minor part in their breeding. Take Eclipse, a great racehorse 
and the most successful stallion of all time, and examine his breeding 
(Part II., page ). lA\s, first dam (to which Bruce Lowe attributes all the 
virtue in founding his " families ") is a Royal mare, to whom has been given 
the figure No. 11) ; but what of the other thirty-one tap-roots comprising his 
pedigree ? Here they are : eleven unhioimi (including Old Montagu), six from 
Royal mares, two each from the Darley Arabian, the Godolphin Barb, Hutton^s 
Bay Barb, the Lister Turk, the old Morocco mare, and one each from the 
Akaster Turk, the Byerley Turk, Bustler mare, a Brimmer mare and a Barb 
mare. 

Surely, if he had given this pedigree a moment's consideration, he must 
have seen the folly of building a system upon such an uncertain foundation 
as a Royal mare, by attributing all the goodness of Eclipse to her, and not 
giving any consideration to the other splendid tap-roots in his pedigree, and 
to which he owed his being the great racehorse and sire he proved to be 



INTR OD UCTION. 



Then, in his son Pottos — tlie greatest racehorse of all time, as will be 
acknowledged, by all who read his jierformances given in Part II. as fully as 
the page would admit — the same unknown quantities must exist, plus a few 
more on the side of his dam, Sportsmistress, who also bred Sir Thomas, winner 
of the Derby, for the then Prince of Wales (afterwards George IV.) in 1788. 

S'ir Thomas was almost an equally good horse as PotSos, as he won for his 
Iloyal owner eleven races, besides the Derby ; and this he had a right to be, 
as his sire, Pontac (who was bred by Sir L. Dundas, ancestor of the Marquess 
of Zetland), was by Marske out of A-la-Ch'ecque by Regulus; consequently these 
celebrities were bred nearly alike. Yet Mr. Bruce Lowe, in writing of them, 
makes Pot8os to belong to the 38 " family " [Thwaites' Dun mare), concerning 
which he writes : " I can find no horses of any note, save PotSos, in this line, 
which speaks volumes for the potency of Eclipse as a sire. Few better horses 
than PotSos ever carried a saddle. Thivaites' Dun mare was evidently not a 
thoroughbred, judging by her colour " ; while he says nothing at all about Sir 
Thomas, or of his elder full brother, Jocimdo (a winner of eleven races), or of 
his half-brother, Eoscius (winner of ten races) by Garrick, all descendants of 
Mr. Bruce Lowe's " cocktail," Thwaites' Dun mare, of whom nothing further 
is known than that she was a daughter of the Akaster Turk (one of the factors 
in the pedigree of Eclipse), and three strains of whose blood were to be found 
in Roscius, as his sire, Garrick, was full brother to Eclijjse. Sir Thomas will, 
however, be found wrongly joZacef? beside Waxy in No. 18 "family " (" Daughter 
of Old Woodcock "), of which he writes most disparagingly, although, besides 
the famous son of PotSos, she was the first dam of Ellington, Fminosa, Oriana, 
Smolensko, and Summerside, all of whom he passes without a word of 
comment until he comes to Waxy (celebrated as a great performer on the 
racecourse and a most successful stallion), into whom he sticks his knife up to 
the hilt ; why or wherefore there is no knowing. Of him he says : " Admu-ers 
of Waxy may take exception to my statements respecting that much eulogised 
horse, but since working by the ' Figure System ' I have been convinced that, 
except for the lucky mating with Penelope of No. 1, we should have seen 
Waxy^s name in very few pedigrees of note. That he hit with Penelope is 
beyond question, but Penelope made Waxy famous, for we " (/, it ought to be) 
"cannot find the great excellence claimed for him by his numerous admirers 
developed through any other channel." 

In giving this opinion, he loses sight of what Waxy Pope and Sir Walter 
did in handing down to posterity the famous blood of PotSos. Very many 
are the good pedigrees in which the name of Waxy Pope (known chiefly in 
Ireland as the " SUyo Waxy ") is to be found, while through Sir Walter the 
British Stud has been eni-iched by the blood of Harkaway in the female line, 
whence, from his union with Pocahontas, we have King Tom, one of the 
grandest horses that ever man clapped eyes on, Mr. Bruce Lowe's comments 
on his " one-legged families," if not instructive, are most amusing, and here is 
the style of some of them. He says of the Tregomoell Xaturcd Barb, No. 1 
family, " This is essentially a running as distinguished from a sire family. 
It is very prominent as a winner of the three classic events (forty-two), and 
the fillies have proved themselves high-class, prolific brood mares. Vexy few

great sires have sprung from this line in proportion to its winners. The 
best are — Partisan, Melbourne, Bay Middleton, Gkncoe, Whalebone, and 
Whisker. Minti-ng is from this line, also his sire, Lord Lyon, Silvio, Craig 
Millar, Trimipator. The above, except Whalebone and Whisker (both good all- 
round horses — sires he meant), are mostly esteemed through their female 
progeny. The members of the family possessed great quality, brilliancy, and 
good looks, as a rule." 

Of No. 2, the Burton Barb mare family, he says : " Like its rival line, it is 
a very valuable dam strain, and has furnished a large contingent of Oaks 
winners. Forty-four classic events have fallen to its share (nine Derbies, 
sixteen Oaks, and nineteen Legers). In Leger winners it nearly doubles 
No. 1, which would point to its being better staying blood, though it is 
somewhat behind No. 1 as a Derby winner. As a sire line it is distinctly 
ahead of its gx^eat rival, and though not in the front rank by a long way, 
many celebrities may be counted amongst its numbers. Prominent are 
Whisky, Blacklock, Sir Hercules, Selim, Castrel, Voltigeur, Harkaimy, SurjMce, 
St. Albans, Lord Clifden, Ithuriel, etc. The two best representatives of this 
line to-day are Carbine and Petro7iel (since dead)." 

Of No. 3, dam of the Two True Blues, he writes: "This is perhaps the 
most valuable family in the ' Stud Book,' because it possesses the dual qualities 
of both a running and a sire line. Its descendants have won forty-two of the 
three great classic races. As a sire line it stands nearly, if not quite, at the 
top of the tree, and mates well with all the other families, being very pliable 
in its nature, and improving every other strain of blood it is crossed with- 
it is only necessary to mention the following names to show how prolific of 
winners its sons have invariably been when put to stud work: — Sir Peter 
Teazle, Buzzard (by Woodpecker), Travip, Master Henry, Velocipede, The 
Saddler, Lanercost, Flatcatcher, Pyrrhus I., Van Tromp, The Flying Dutch- 
man, Stockioell, Musket, Favonius, Galopin, King Tom, Tim Whiter, Rayon 
d'Or, Wellingtonia, and many others. 

Of No. 4 (the Layton Barb mare) he says : " This family is prolific, both in 
numbers and classic winners — twenty-eight having fallen to its share. It 
comes from a pure Barb source and is distinctly feminine in its character. 
No great all-round sires have sprung from this family. Many of them 
have been highly valued through their fillies — to wit, Matchem, Thormanby, 
Kisber, Iroquois, Emigrant (Australian, imported by the late Admiral Rous), 
and notably Wenlock, whose daughters are veritable gold mines." He thus 
comments on No. 5 {Massey's Black Barb mare) : " Twenty-fotu- classic events 
have been credited to No. 5. The horses of this family which stand out con- 
spicuously are Gladiateur, He>'mit, and Doncaster. As a running Hne it is 
most valuable, and, from its pliability, mates with most strains, preferring 
sire blood. Great sires in the family are few and far between — i.e., as com- 
pared with some of the sire lines." 

These complete Mr. Bruce Lowe's comments on his " running famiHes," 
and now for what he says of his " sire families," 3, 8, 11, 12, 14. No. 3 (dam 
of the Two True Blues) being reckoned by him to be both a running and a sire 
family, has been already noticed. Of No. 8 {The Byerly Turk — Bustler mare) 



INTR OD UCTION. 



he writes : " I cannot help regarding this to be one of the most valuable 
sire families in the ' Stud Book,' not excepting No. 3. Not only have many 
gi-eat sires come directly from the line, such as Marske, Orville, ^Sultan, New- 
minster, Cam, Humphry Clinker, Chester (Australian), etc., but there is a 
marked tendency to leave equally great sons and sires behind them. Marske 
begat Eclipse, a greater sii-e than himself ; Orville was inferior as a racehorse 
and sire to Emilius, his son ; Bay Middleton was more esteemed than his sire. 
Sultan, as was Melbourne than his sire, Humphry Clinker ; while few will be 
found to chspute the fact that, great as Newminster proved to be at turf and 
stud, he was out-classed by both Loixl Clifden and Hermit in these respects. 
No. 8 line claims thirteen classic winners." 

Next comes No. 11 {The Sedhury Royal mare), and on this "family" Mr. 
Bruce Lowe thus comments: "Four Derbies, two Oaks, and three Legeis 
have fallen to the descendants of this family, which includes many illustrious 
names, that have helped to make the English stud famous. The first pro- 
minent horses of the family were Squirt and Regulus, and more recently 
Birdcatcher and Fauyh-a-Ballacjh kept up its prestige. St. Simon, the premier 
sire of England, hails from its ranks. In America the name of Australian 
(imported) will long be treasured ; while at the Antipodes, Marvellous (im- 
ported) claims the honour of siring Marvel, probably the fastest mile horse 
ever saddled in Australia, and the conquei^or of Carbine over that distance of 
ground. These are only a few of its great sons, and pages might be devoted 
to the career of old Fisherman, who ended his days in Austi'alia, leaving a 
long roll of classic winners to keep his memory green." 

Then he thus comments on No. 12 [The Boyal mare — dam of The Brimmer 
mare, from whom Eclipse is descended) : " This line affords an instance of 
one of the anomalies of breeding ; for, whereas the Oaks winners (6) are out 
of all pi'oportion to the solitaiy and fluky Derby winner, Cadland, and two 
Leger winners, and would thereby lead me to the conclusion that it is 
effeminate in its nature, experience shows it to be the stoutest and most 
masculine in the ' Stud Book ' all the way up to Eclipse. In the name of 
Eclipse we can add a larger number of good sires from this family than from 
any other line now existing, except No. 3. Some of the best-known names 
are Conductor, Voltaire, Sheet Anchor, Weatherbit, Edmund, O.iford, Sterliny, 
Scottish Chief, Marsyas, Prince CJuirlie and his son Salvator (American), 
Ethelbert, Restitution, Adventurer, Kingston, Sprhufjield, Lexington (American), 
and some of the males of the Levity family ; in Australia Tros and Gloriotis, 
imported. It is also a line which stands inbi'eeding to itself," several instances 
of which he gives, with the concluding remark : " But it will be found that 
in all these cases of inbreeding the 12 line to itself with success, it was 
accompanied by a strong return to the runniiig families as well (through 
collateral branches), to ensure the requisite amount of racing vitality to the 
offspring." 

Then of the fifth and last of his sire families, No. 14 {The Oldfield mare), 
he writes : " As a classic winner, this family does not take high rank ; only one 
Derby (through the aid of Macaroni), two Oaks, and three Legers. Taking 
into consideration the inferior figure it cuts as a classic winner, one would

hai'dly look to its ranks for great sires, if one followed the orthodox plan of 
' vising only running families.' This case especially strengthens my position 
in assuming that sire, and running qualities are not necessarily akin. On 
the one side we require stout, masculine breeding, combined with strong 
individuality, symmetry, and ability to race, if possible ; and on the other, 
soundness of constitution, with an accumulation of vitality only to be acquired 
by close in-breeding to Nos. 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5 — but of this more anon. The 
first sire of any note in the 14 line was Trumpator (of the Godoljyhin Barb 
branch) ; then came Touchstone, a horse that has made a great name for all 
time, The Libel, Macaroni, Touchet, Buccaneer, Saraband, Carnival, and 
Saccharometer ; also Leamington, imported into America and destined to sire 
Iroquois. The 14 line has done further service in the States, for has it not 
given them Tammany (from Tullahoma, 14)? Two of the best sires ever 
imported to Australia, Panic and Grand Master, hail from the 14 line ; and a 
possibly better than either, Middlesex, died in his first season. But T think 
the foregoing list is sufficient to place it beyond doubt that this family ranks 
high as a sire line." 

Now, before commenting on the strange manner he has introduced these 
nine " tap-roots," it is necessary to refer to what he says of one more — viz., 
No. 7 {D'Arcy's Black-legged Royal mare), the " first dam " of Persimmon. 
He begins : "Nine Derbies, two Oaks, and three Legers. This line is familiar 
to pedigree men through West Australian, the best representative. Like 
No. 6 {Old Bald Peg), there is a preponderance of Derby over Oaks and 
Leger winners, which would seem to point to its fillies being as a general 
thing wanting in feminine character and not over good producers. The 
classic winners are given below."

Semolina (1000) 
West Australian (D, L)

The "figures" are assumed to point out the breeding of all the winners 
of the Derby, Oaks, and St. Leger ; but, as we have seen, they do nothing of 
the kind, they only show their Arab or Barb origin ; and surely no one in his 
senses can be made believe that the several winners of these classic races were 
enabled to do so from any vu'tue they took from their " tap-roots " alone, as 
Mr. Bruce Lowe seeks to make breeders believe. Then it will not escape the 
notice of any one who reads his amusing analysis of the several peculiarities 
of these " tap-roots," that, although he descants at large upon the merits of 
all the great horses descended from the nine first "figured dames " he regards 
with such favour, he has never a word to say about their celebrated female 
descendants, although his work was written with the intent of showing the 
great share they had in bringing the British stud to what it now is. It is 
true he gives their names ; but while he points to the success of the horses as 
stallions, there is not a word about what the mares did at the stud. 

In his full-page picture of his " tap-root " The Tregonwell Natural Barb, 
or No. 1, as he desires her to be known by, he surely might have had a word 



INTR OD UCTION. 



to say in praise of such grandes dames of the British stud as Promise, 
Prunella, Peneloj^e, Clementina, Cobweb, Web, Morel, Mustard, Oxygen, 
Pilgrimage, Pres&rve, Prairie Bird, Queen Bertha, etc. — mares that almost 
deserve the worship of breeders for what they have done for the British stud. 
Then it is the same with No. 2, The Burton Barb mare. Among the famous 
brood mares descended from her are Crucifix, Heronione, Imperatrix, Industry, 
Lady Evelyn, Marchioness, etc., who are passed by without comment, while 
he strangely omits all mention of Pocahontas the most celebrated of them all. 
No great brood mare sprang from No. 3 (dam of the Two True Blues), the best 
being Hannah, Hurricane, Mayonnaise, and Mincemeat, notwithstanding her 
blood being described as very '■'■pliable in its nature," whatever that may 
mean, and " improving every other strain of blood it is crossed with " — which 
is mere assumption. Then from No. 4 {The Layton Barb) we have The 
Duchess, Virago, Manganese, Medora, and Thebais, all distinguished brood 
mares, for whom there is no word of praise ; nor for Deception, Fille de VAir, 
or Miami, descendants of No. 5 {The Massey mare). Nor in the summing up 
of the value of the descendants of his " sii-e figures " does he say a word 
in favour of Alticido7'a, Manuella, Parasol (the three famous daughters of 
PotSos), Pewet, Hester, or Miss Letty, etc. All his praise is given to the 
male, the female is slighted all through ; and in the numerous pedigree 
tables given in his work, he has only in a few instances bestowed a figure on 
any of the mares he makes mention of to denote her descent. In his 
comments on No. 8 {The Byerly Turk — Bustler mare) he makes some state- 
ments that ought not to be let pass. He says Orville was inferior as a 
racehorse and sire to his son Emilius ; and that Kewminster was outclassed, 
both on the racecourse and at the stud, by his sons Lord Clifden and Hermit 
— an opinion in which very few people will agree with him. And while he 
alludes to Thebais as a distinguished descendant of No. 4, he says not a word 
for St. Marguerite of the same family. 

The uselessness of the " figures " in teaching mxything to breeders ha\n.ng 
been thus pointed out, it would serve no good purpose to further criticise 
Mr. Bruce Lowe's very erratic work, " Breeding Racehorses by the Figure 
System," which has had a very severe handling in the sporting press and from 
the hard-headed, common-sense breeders of the United States, a few of whose 
comments are so amusing and yet so true they are well worth being held in 
memory by the horse-breeder — which they are sure to be when found in a 
work like this, entirely devoted to the subject. A correspondent of the 
Thoroughbred Record, signing himself " S. Y. K.," thus writes from George- 
town, Kentucky : — 

" I have been shown some criticism of Mr. Bruce Lowe upon Boston and 
Lexington that is somewhat at variance with oui- American views, and I for 
one feel disposed to kick. Speaking of those horses' four-mile races, he says : 
' The factor of high speed was not in evidence ... it is safer to gauge a horse 
by his performance in the stud.' Now every old turfman knows that Boston 
was a horse of phenomenal speed, and second equal to the best quarter-racer 
of his day, and Lexington's four miles in 7min. 19|sec. was no waiting race. 
At the stud he seemed to nick successfully with every strain, and earned for 



INTR OD UCTION. 



himself the reputation of ' Emperor of Stallions.' Again, Mr. Lowe says of 
Lexington^ ' He, like the rest of the Herod line, stands a fair show of fading 
out of existence . . . take Glencoe and Yorkshire away, and where would he 
have been ? . . . take Penelope away, and where else would we find the much 
vaunted Waxy ? ' It would be diiBcult to find in turf literature more gross 
errors couched in as few brief sentences. Although derisively done, the com- 
parison of Lexington and Waxy is somewhat apt, and injurious to neither. 
Lexington may be appropriately styled the Waxy of America. Stonehenge, 
the authority in England and America, says : " Waxy stands at the head of 
the list, not only as a racehorse himself, but having produced immediately 
and remotely, more winners of great events than any two horses since his 
time." Penelope was a failure to all other stalhons. Instead of Lexington 
blood fading out of existence, I apprehend it will be some time before 
American breeders depreciate a pedigree on account of the Boston, Lexington, 
and War Dance blood in it, and the same may be said of the immortal Waxy. 
If Mr. Lowe's figure system is as faulty as these quotations, his book ' stands 
a fair show of fading out of existence ' before the reputation of Waxy and 
Lexington. That Lexington was fortunate in having access to Glencoe^s 
daughters is cheerfully conceded, and I doubt if thei'e was a stallion in the 
world that could have made better use of them. In this Lexington and 
Glencoe cross, I think we possess an advantage over England, in that we have 
more of it, and not so much diluted, and can intensify it, as in Hamburg. 

" I am at a loss to know why doubts are expressed about this horse going 
a distance. Assuredly it cannot be on account of his breeding. Let us 
analyse and see. It cannot be attributable to Virgil and Florence, to Bonnie 
Scotland and Ella D., to Australian and Aerolite, nor to Enquirer and Lizzie G. 
I fancy it must be a mistake. A horse's momentum depends upon his pedal 
members properly adjusted by muscles and leverage, true and frictionless. 
His capacity to live in a long, hard struggle depends upon his heart and 
lungs ; exertion accelerates the heart's action, and the lungs must be equal to 
the emergency, or the animal chokes up. This organisation is hereditary, 
and may be improved by cultivation. In this internal organisation I think 
we possess an advantage over our English cousins in the remnant of our 
four-mile blood found in the descendants of Boston and Lexington. Was 
Hamhurg a high-priced horse ? His sire is renowned as the most valuable 
stallion in America, and perhaps $75,000 would not buy him. Hamhurg is 
more homogeneously bred than his sire, and therefore likely to reproduce 
himself. He undoubtedly possesses a high order of speed with stout backing 
blood, and to the ' Copper King ' he is likely to prove the pride of his life, 
when the turf of the orient shall bow to the supremacy of the Occident." 

Another breeder in the Thoroughbred Record, under the signature of 
"E. F. C," dating from Runnymede, thus gives his views of the "Figure 
System " : — 

"Granting Mr. Lowe's theory in general, that the best results are 
obtained by the intermingling of the blood of these famihes, which have in 
the past produced the greatest number of racehorses, I deny that his theory 
of figures aids or assists the breeder in making his selections. I assei-t that 



INTR OD UCTION. 



his figures are misleading and do not show " at a glance " what blood has 
been brought into the combination. The only thing they do show definitely 
is from what ' tap-root ' the individuals spring. Eliminate the individual 
names from a tabulated pedigree, and would an intelligent breeder risk the 
pedigree interpi-eted entirely by the figures ? 

" An animal that is twenty removes from the ' tap-root,' if there was no 
inbreeding, would contain, to be exact, 1-1048576 part of the blood of that 
' tap-root,' The sum of all the ancestors, if there was no inbreeding, would be 
2,097,150; but, in fact, every animal in the 'Stud Book' is very mvich 
inbred, and the more inbreeding the fewer individuals enter into the pedigree. 
Now, Mr. Lowe's figure attaches to every animal that comes through the 
female line from this common ' tap-root.' Therefore when you see a figure in 
a pedigree it is indefinite. It may mean entirely different blood in difierent 
pedigree, and you must search further to have an intelligent knowledge of the 
blood lines of the animal. 

"To illustrate further, I will take Lexington, whose family is 12 under 
the Lowe system. Now Lexington's pedigree does not figure out to suit 
Mr. Lowe for a great stallion, and he is led into saying that he would have 
proved a failure had it not been for the Glencoe blood in his mates, backed up 
by the Yorkshire. Mr. Lowe is begging the question when he makes this 
statement, for may he not have said the same of The Baron, which, by his 
mating with Pocahontas, produced the great Stockwell, whose blood entei-s so 
largely into the successful horses of to-day ; or of Harhaway, which produced 
Crreat Tarn from Pocahontas, the blood that is so much sought after. Mr. 
Lowe further tells us that ' every time that Lexington is introduced into a 
pedigree at the present day and inbred, as one sees so frequently in American 
pedigrees, all this dead weight of outside blood is brought to the surface.' 
Certainly more convincing arguments must be employed by Mr. Lowe to 
induce American breeders to eliminate Lexington from their pedigrees. If 
Mr. Lowe is correct, then, whenever we see this figure 12 in a pedigree, we 
should look about with suspicion and see if it means Lexington or something 
else. What is known in America as the Levity family traces back to the 
same 'tap-root' 12. Lexington's branch and Levity's branch separate at 
the 12tli remove from the 'tap-root.' I might prefer the Levity branch of 
this family, another breeder might prefer the Jjexington branch ; hence, when 
the figure 12 appears, we must closely examine this pedigree to ascertain 
what this 12 represents. 

" Let me take one more illustration. Suppose I mate a mare from 
family 1 with sire 8, and the produce, a mare, is again mated with sii'e 
11, this produce, a mare, is also mated with a sire number 12. Is not the 
produce of this last union decidedly a ' sire ' bred animal in blood 1 Yet 
Mr. Bruce Lowe, whether the produce be male or female, would designate it 
by the figure 1 a ' running ' number. 

" I am forced to the conclusion that the theory of figures is not sound. 
It elucidates no new theory ; it gives no clear or definite idea of the blood 
lines : it is, to say the least, misleading. Students of Mr. Lowe will notice 
that one of the greatest, if not the greatest, family in the ' Stud Book,' 



INTR OD UCTION. 



StochwelVs (3), is classified as both ' running ' and ' sire,' a ' dual family. 
This is the great balance wheel in his theory, and pulls him out of many a 
tight place. It can be used as a * sire number ' when there is a deficiency of 
' sire ' blood, and a ' running number ' -where there is a deficiency of ' running ' 
blood. It will also be observed that, when his table of sires do not contam the 
necessary sire numbers in the first three removes, he goes back to supply the 
deficiency, thereby giving to blood back six or eight removes more importance 
than it deserves; for a cross seven removes back is only 1-128 of the blood. 
While blood once introduced into a pedigree can never be entirely eliminated, 
yet, when introduced some six or seven removes back, it must be dominated 
by the top crosses. 

" To quote Mr. Lowe again : ' Every racehorse of to-day, as a fact, 
contains in his table the whole of the nine (numbers), either directly or 
through collateral branches some distance back.' As all thoroughbreds are 
more or less in-bred, these numbers are more or less multiplied ; hence is it 
not a fact that nearly every pedigree in the ' Stud Book ' has more or less of 
these figures in the first three removes ? These facts are a fruitful source, to 
which Mr. Lowe resorts when his tables do not show a sufiicient quantity of 
' sire ' or ' running ' blood in the first three removes. 

" Mr. Lowe is like the doctor who sends a prescription to the di"uggist, 
naming aU of the ingredients but failing to state the proportion (his figures 
do not indicate it). Compounded in a certain proportion, it may mean 
invigorated life, concentrated nerve force; in another proportion, it may 
mean death. Nor do I believe in the accident theory. To those that do, I 
would say breed in the lines of those families in which the most accidents 
happen. In conclusion, I would say to the breeder : put aside Mr. Lowe's 
' picture gall&)'y ' ; put aside Mr. Lowe's saturation theory, which I think 
wholly untenable ; put aside the confusing figures ; keep on in the good old 
common-sense way that has brought the racehorse to the present high 
standard of excellence ; mate the best racehorses fiom the pure blood lines 
with the best individual members of those families that have produced 
racehorses all along the line." 

There is sound sense in the remarks of these two American breeders, and 
also excellent advice — for it must be evident to eveiy one who chooses to 
inquire into the subject that Mr. Bruce Lowe's " figures " are a " craze " of 
the most marked character, far fetched and misleading. 

Before adverting to the part played in the past year's racing by the 
offspring of the principal stallions of the day, the pedigrees and performances 
of no fewer than seventy-eight of whom are given in this edition of the 
Horse-breeders' Handbook, it will be only right to dii-ect the further attention 
of studmasters and others interested in the breeding of the thoroughbred 
horse to the additional " Fathers of the Bi'itish Stud " given in Part II. of 
this work ; for besides learning therefrom the " tap-roots " of many celebrities, 
there is much to be gained by a study of their pedigi-ees and performances. 

The performances of all the newly added " Fathers of the British Stud," 
twelve in number, but particularly those of PotSos, commencing at page 57, 
Part II., will be read with no little astonishment by the breeders and owners

of running horses in the present day, showing as they do the extraordinary 
stamina with which they were endowed, and the like of which is to be found 
in very few horses of the piesent day. Pottos was the best of them all, and 
was unquestionably the stoutest runner of all time, as he won thirty-five 
races, seventeen of them over the Beacon course : and after this statement it 
need hardly be said that he was by far the best of all Eclipse's famous sons. 
His pedigree is given in the page opposite his performances, where it will be 
seen that his first dam is unknown, but that his second is Thwaite's Dun mare, 
pronounced to be not thoroughbred on account of her colour by Mr. Bruce 
Lowe ; who, however, overlooked enlarging on the subject of colour by 
pointing out that Miss Slamerkin must also be half-bred through being a 
daughter of Lord Oxford's celebrated Dun Arabian ! It is accordingly quite 
plain that the " figure system " makes PotSos half-bred, notwithstanding his 
having in him plenty of Arab or Barb blood — as may be seen in his pedigree — 
and that from him descended Waxi/ and all his great family, as well as those of, 
perhaps, the three most successful brood mares of all time — Parasol, Coheiress, 
and Mandatie. 

King Fergus was the next most celebrated son of Eclipse, both as a runner 
and a sire. He won eight races. He was second to PotSos for a Sweepstakes 
over the Beacon course, having Dorimant (who in his turf career won 
twenty-two races) behind him and some others; while he won subsequently 
four events over the Beacon course. King Fergus was so little thought of by 
English breeders that he was sold to an Irishman, and covered two or three 
seasons at the Curragh, where several of his progeny having proved good 
runners he was, happily for the British stvid, taken back to England, where 
he begat very many winners, including Beninghrough and ffambletonian, 
whence Blacklock and all his fine descendants. On his dam's side Ki^ig Fergus 
descended from the Alcock Arabian through Crab and Black and All Black 
(also called Othello, a famous runner), who was a son of Miss Slamerkin ; and 
as this famous mare is one of the chief factors, as well as the Alcock Arabian 
(two strains), in the breeding of Sportsmistress, the dam of PotSos, it will be 
seen that Kirig Fergus is closely related to that famous horse. So in the 
present day it is not surprising to see the commingling of the blood of Waxy 
and Blacklock produce gi-eat runners. It will be seen by reference to his 
pedigi-ee in Part II., p. 60, that, in regard to the Arab or Barb blood in him, 
the first dam of King Fergus was the Old Mwocco mare, of whose blood he had 
five more strains, with seven from Roijal mares, two from the Old Vintner 
mare, one from the Burton Barb mare, and eight from unknown sources. 

Hambletonian need only be referred to as the best son of King Fergus and 
a far better performer on the racecourse than his sire, as he won no fewer 
than seventeen races, chiefly over the long distances, as in the days of these 
great horses there were no sprint races. 

Cation comes next in chronological order, and both the history of his 
doings on the turf and his pedigree are well deserving of being closely looked 
into by breeders, as well as the owners of running horses. He contested 
thirty-two races, of which he won twenty-two, fourteen of them successively 
without defeat ; while as a sire he was far away the most successful of his

day. CattonJs pedigree is an exemplification of the success that from the first 
attended in-breeding to Eclipse, Herod, and Matchem, and has continued to 
the present day through their descendants. In the pedigree of this great 
horse, who was by Golumpus — Liuiy Grey by Timothy, it can be seen in 
Part II., page 64, that his sire and dam had in them nearly equal quantities 
of the blood of these three celebrities above named, who are the great pro- 
genitors of the British stud, and had the breeding of these been closely 
looked into by Mr. Bruce Lowe, he never would have written all the nonsense 
that fills nearly every page of his posthumous work, " Breeding Racehorses 
by the Figure System " ; and how Mr. Allison, its editor, failed to see that 
the " figures " are all moonshine, it is difficult to imagine. The pedigree of 
Cation shows the true way to in-breed. 

Filho-da-Puta, though, like Hamhletonian, a winner of the St. Leger, was 
nothing like so good a runner as Catton ; but he nevertheless won nine races 
— four, including the great prize of the North, for his owner and breeder. Sir 
W. Maxwell, and the last five (see Part II., p. 65) in the colours of Mr. T. 
Houldsworth, who gave 3,000gs. for him the week he won the St, Leger. 
He also was in-bred to Eclipse, Uerod, and The Godolpkin (not wholly through 
Matchem, but through Cade, his sire, Regulus, and Blank). Hence he was a 
most successful stallion, as his name is to be found in all the best pedigrees 
of the present day. The several strains of blood he derived from his Arab or 
Barb ancestors are given elsewhere with his performances ; but it may be 
here stated that his first dam was the Royal mare fi-om whom Eclipse is 
descended. 

Mulatto, the best son of Catton, and almost as distinguished as his sire on 
the racecourse, was another of the stout runners so plentiful in the early part 
of the century and so very scarce at its close. He only lost the St. Leger, in 
a field of twenty-seven runners, by a head from Tarrare, another son of Catton, 
whom he subsequently beat more than once. His greatest race was, however, 
the Gold Cup at Doncaster (4yrs. old) in 1827, when he won that coveted 
trophy for Lord Fitzwilham, beating Memnon and Fleur-de-Lis, who ran a 
dead heat for second place, while the other runners included Tarrare, Long- 
waist, Actceon, Starch, and Reviewer. The pedigi-ee of this celebrated horse 
almost ensured the success that attended his racing career, as he was almost 
the closest in-bred horse to Eclipse, Herod, and Matchem of his day, there 
being in the combined pedigrees of his sire Catton and his dam Desdemoaa 
three strains of Eclipse, eight of Herod, and twenty-one of Matchem— ov rather, 
The Godolphin, and to the great preponderance of the blood of the latter he 
doubtless owed his stoutness, as did Harkaioay and Melbourne some years 
later. The several strains of Arab or Barb blood in Midatto are referred to 
in the description of his doings on the racecourse. At the stud he acquired 
most celebrity from being the sire of Martha Lynn, the dam of Voltigeur and 
Volley. 

Voltaire, one of Blacklock's most distinguished sons, had but a short career 
on the racecourse. He ran as a two-year-old, winning the Pdchmond Club 
Stakes as early as April 9th, 1828, over a mile course, beating five opponents ; 
and at Newcastle he won the Tyro Stakes over a six-fui-Iong course. In 



INTRO D UCTION. 



these races he showed such stamina that the Duke of Cleveland gave a big 
figure for him, and in His Grace's colours he ran Rowton to a neck for the 
St. Leger, with Sir Hercides third ; and subsequently the same week he won 
the Doncaster Gold Cup easily from Laurel, Fleur-de-Lis, Medora, Granhy, 
and Cistercian in 4min. 56secs. — a great performance ; but, having hit his leg 
in the race, he never ran again. His pedigree is another exemplification of 
the success that attended close breeding to Eclipse, Herod, and Matchem, their 
blood being transmitted to Blacklock through King Fergus, PotSoa (two 
strains). Frenzy, and Coheiress ; Highjlyer (two strains). Phenomenon, and 
Lavender ; Monimia and Atalanta ; while it came to his mate, the daughter of 
Phantom, through Dungannon, Saltram, and King Fergus ; Highjlyer (two 
strains), Calash's dam, and Walnut ; Giantess, Maiden, and Piracantha ; all 
names to which great honour attaches, as being instrumental in helping to lay 
the foundation of the British stud ; and the celebrity of the mares in the 
pedigree of Voltaire will doubtless arrest the attention of breeders. In regard 
to Voltaire's " first Arab or Barb dam," she was the same Poyal mare from 
whom Eclipse is descended, and his other *' tap-roots " will be found referred 
to in the descriptive particulars of him given in Part II. 

Glencoe (foaled in 1833, same year as Birdwatcher and Touchstone) claims 
afiectionate remembrance from breeders of the thoroughbred horse on both 
sides of the broad Atlantic. Though defeated by Plenipotentiary for a Sweep- 
stakes at Newmarket, and subsequently for the Derby, for which he ran 
third in a field of twenty -one runners, being beaten out of the second money 
by /Shillelagh, he won the Two Thousand, the Ascot Gold Cup, and several 
other races, and was unquestionably one of the best horses that ever trod an 
English racecourse. Unlike the " bullock," the soubriquet given to Plenipo- 
tentiary from his immense size and his beefy appearance, Glencoe was a horse 
of medium size and exquisite quality, while his colour and white markings 
were alike to those of Eclipse, and which it may be believed that both took 
from the Royal mure, the granddam of the Montagu wMre. As may be seen 
(page 72) she is seven times repeated in his pedigree, bringing into it, of 
course, seven strains of Eclipse, while he had in him nine strains of Herod 
and four of Matchem (representing The Godolphin), of whom Glencoe had in 
him thirty-three more strains, showing the great influence that celebrated 
Barb exercised in breeding the racehorses of that day. GUnco^s pedigree 
further shows that, although the Tregonwell Natural Barb Ls his first dam, 
and he inherited another strain of her through Woodpechen', her blood 
could have exercised but very slight influence in making him the great horse 
he proved to be. Unfortunately Glencoe was sold to America before his value 
as a sire was known, leav-ing the British stud but one of his ofiispring to 
fittingly hand down his name to posterity in his native land — Pocahontas, a 
host in herself, as a pedigi-ee without her name is almost useless, but when it 
appears three or four times, "hath, indeed, no price." The great deeds 
Glencoe accomplished at the stud in the United States are given in detail by 
Mr. S. D. Bruce, the accomplished editor of the American " Stud Book," in 
his great work entitled, "The Thoroughbred Horse: his Origin, how to 
Breed, and how to Select him," published at New York in 1892.

The Flying Dutchman is entitled to the special notice of breeders, owing 
to his being the best son of Bay Middhton, the sire of his day, held in 
most esteem by that admirable jvidge of breeding and racing, Lord George 
Bentinck ; and his pedigree is quite a study, showing as it does the excellent 
judgment of the breeder of The Flying Dutchman, and of the early stud- 
masters in holding by close in-breeding to Eclipse, Herod, and Matchem, 
through their celebrated descendants, among whom Whisky, Alexander, Waxy, 
Gohanna, Beningbro\ Don Quixote, Diomed, Buzzard, Sir Peter, Timothy, 
Trumpator, and Sorcerer are the chief males to be found in his pedigree ; 
while such distinguished gra7ides dames of the stud as Arethusa, Bacchante, 
Catherine, Evelina, Editha, Filagree, Goldenlocks, Grecian Princess, Orvillina, 
Cobweb, Web, Penelope, etc., are among his female ancestors. In regard to 
The Flying Dutchman's descent from the " children of the desert," the Burton 
Barb mare (as in Persimmon's pedigree) plays the most prominent part, as 
she is h\& first dam ; while he inhei'its eight more strains from her, with eight 
from Royal mares, including three from D'Arcy's Black-legged Royal mare (the 
first dam of Persimmon), and two each from TregonwelV s Natural Barb mare 
and from King William's No-tongv^d Barb — Makeless, a mare not " figured " 
in Mr. Bruce Lowe's work. 

Voltigeur, a great racehorse, but indifferent sire, was a grandson of Black- 
lock from the union of his sire, Voltaire, Avith Martha Lynn by Mulatto, her 
dam Leda by Filho-da-Puta — breeding that will be found in tabular form 
at page 76, and is well worth the attentive study of every breeder of the 
thoroughbred horse. In no fewer than fifteen of its thirty -two quarterings 
the name of Eclipse is to be found, then in eighteen the name of Herod is 
prominent, and in eleven that of Matchem, showing Voltigeur to be more 
closely in-bred to these three distinguished old sires than any stallion of his 
time. But, notwithstanding this fact, Voltigeur was a failure at the stud, 
until it was pointed out by the writer, in his controversy with Dr. Short- 
house, that when bred into himself it would be difierent, and the suggestion 
proved to be right, in evidence of which the British stud has been enriched by 
Galopin, St. Simon, and the numerous fine horses springing from their loins. 

Vedette claims the notice of breeders from being the best son of Voltigeur, 
both on the racecourse and at the stud. He was purchased from his breeder, 
Mr. R. Chilton, for i,000gs. and contingencies, by Mr. William Williamson for 
his brother-in-law, the Earl of Zetland, after he had won two races when two 
years old for his breeder. In the " red spots " jacket of Lord Zetland, known 
so well on English racecourses for the best part of two centuries, Vedette won 
the Two Thousand in 1857 from Anto7i, Loyola, and nine others; but suffer- 
ing from a severe attack of rheumatism, to which he was unhappUy subject 
all his life, he was precluded from running for the Derby won by Blink 
Bonny, and not being engaged in the St. Leger — a race in which his 
ancestoi's so often distinguished themselves, and which was won by Imperieuse 
— Lord Zetland had to be content with his winning only one of the classic 
races. But as will be seen in Part II., p. 77, he won for that nobleman the 
Doncaster Gold Cup twice in successive years, besides other races ; and the 
writer had the assurance of Mr. Williamson, with whom he was on the most

intimate terms of friendship, and always accompanied him for several recur- 
ring anniversaries of the Derby, when visiting the Saddling Paddock, to look 
over the several competitoi-s for the "blue riband," that he believed Vedette 
to be the best horse that he had known in his long connection with the turf, 
and this was quite possible from his breeding. He sprang from the union 
of Voltigeur (of the King Fergus line of Eclipse) with Mrs. Ridgway by Bird- 
catcher (of the PotSos line of Eclipse) both being about the same number of 
removes from that celebrity ; while Mrs. Eidgway's dam, lian Darrell, was 
descended from Dick Andrews, thus bringing into Vedette's pedigree the third 
living line of Eclipse, and through 2iell, the dam of ]^an Darrell, a fourth 
strain of Eclipse, was brought in through her sire Blaclcloclc, showing Vedette 
to be closely in-bred to Blacklock. But he had in him besides twenty-one 
more strains of Eclipse, through Coriander (3), Coheiress (2), Whisky, Overton, 
Gohanna (2), Frenzy, Orville, Filho-da-Puta, Camillus, Waxy, Alexander, Boh 
Booty, Mandane, Dungannon, Comus (2), and Lisette, making in all twenty- 
five strains of that celebrity ; while he had in turn twenty-seven strains of 
Herod, and seventeen of Matchem (inclusive of six of the Godolphin from 
other sources) ; so of all the sires whose pedigrees are given in this work that 
of Vedette best exemplifies the excellent judgment of the early breeders of the 
thoroughbred horse in holding Eclipse, Herod, and Matchem, in the high 
estimation they did. 

Thorinanhy, although his career on the turf was chequered by some un- 
locked for defeats, was still a great performer on the racecoui-se. When only 
two years old he ran in fourteen races, nine of which he won, and for several 
of which he had to fight hard to get his head in front ; while he was once 
second and placed third on three occasions, showing himself to be one of the 
gamest two-year-olds that ever carried a racing jacket, and doubtless it was 
this hard work which caused him to be subsequently an uncertain runner. He 
won the Derby easily from The Wizard, Horror, and twenty-four other runners, 
among whom were Buccaneer, Jfan-at-Arms, and Mainstone ; but on Don- 
caster Town Moor, although he started the favourite, he was easily overthrown 
by St. Albans for the St. Leger, the second and third places being filled by 
High Treason and The Wizard, with Thormanhy next, and eleven others 
behind him. Subsequently, in 1861, he took the Claret at Newmarket from 
Umpire and Thunderbolt, at Ascot won the Gold Cup, in which he turned 
the tables on St. Albans, and also beat Fairivater, Parmesan, Royallieu, Did- 
cihella, and Plumper, and for his other performances see Part II., p. 79. 
Thormanhy from his breeding could not be otherwise than a good runner, as 
he came from the union of Windhound with one of the grandest mares ever 
foaled, and a splendid performer on the turf, Alice Hawthorn, the daughter 
of Muley Moloch and Rebecca by Lottery ; and his pedigree shows that, of the 
three great olden sires, he had in him twenty strains of Eclipse, thirty-two of 
Herod, and fifteen of Matchem. Nevertheless, his career at the stud was 
only partially successful, which may have been owing to the hard work he 
underwent diiring his racing career ; and there is proof of his having been 
physically afiected by it, as he dropped dead from heart disease in March 
1875, in the eighteenth year of his age. The value of Thormanhy' s blood in 



INI ROD UCIION. 



a pedigree has lately, however, come in strong evidence through the wonder- 
ful performaaces of Galtee More, in whose breeding his name is to be found 
both on the side of his sire, Kendal, and his dam, Morganette, who is hy Sjyring- 
Jield, her dam Lady Morgan by Thormanhy — Morgan-la-Faye by Cowl, while 
his blood through Kendal came to him owing to His Grace the Duke of 
Westminster having, with his usual clear perception, recognised its value and 
bred from one of his daughters Rouge Rose, who happily enriched the Eaton 
Stud by breeding Bend Or from her union with Doncaster, and hence Kendal. 
But, further, the value of Thormanhy's blood in a pedigree is proved by the 
high form shown on the racecourse by G^'eenlawn another son of Kendal — 
Buda by Balfe, a grandson of Thormanhy, through the union of his son 
Plaudit with Bohemia by Weatherbit (see p. 58). And here it may be men- 
tioned that Balfe died in Ireland in December 1889, from a twisted bowel, to 
the great loss and deep regret of Irish breeders. 

From a perusal of the foregoing epitome of the doings of the twelve newly 
added old sires to Part II. of this work, and a study of their pedigrees, there 
is a great deal to be learned by both the breeders and owners of running 
horses. Great changes have taken place in the manner of racing since the 
days they, or the majority of them, figured on the turf. There was then no 
sprint racing, there were no two-year-old races, and all the distances run were 
from a mile and a quarter (the course now known as A.F., or " Across the 
the Flat"), to 4m. Ifur. 177yds. (the Beacon course), except for the races 
contested " beyond the ditch," where is situate the round course (3m. 4fur. 
138yds.) and the Bunbury mile, over which many great races were contested 
in days of yore, but still greater over the Beacon course. Now all this is 
changed. Races over the Beacon course are unheard of ; " sprint " races have 
taken their place, five furlongs being the most popular distance, and that for 
even old horses, while a two-mile race is seldom run, and four miles never. 
Well, what is the result? The majority of the horses now bred have but 
little stamina ; not ten out of evex'y hundred can stay a mile, not five two 
miles, while it is probable not one, unless a Persimmon or a Galtee More, 
could be had to compass the Beacon course in decent time, over which in 
the olden time large fields contended. This all requires change, and, unless 
the stewards of the Jockey Club move in the matter, and make great altera- 
tions in the method of racing now in vogue, England will have to resign her 
premiership in horses to our neighbours across the silver streak, where their 
rules are much more in accordance with common sense than those of the 
Jockey Club. In France no two-year-old racing is permitted until the autumn. 
Let that be the rule here, or at least abolish the Brocklesby Stakes at Lincoln, 
and permit no two-year-old races to be run sooner than the July meeting at 
Newmarket. That would give the two-year-olds three months to mature; 
and every one who understands the rearing of youngsters well knows the 
immense improvement made at that period of their lives, when the warmth 
of the weather, in which the thoroughbred horse delights, helps them to 
mature and develop, when they come more readily to the trainer's hand. 
Many and many a fine two-year-old has the writer seen ruined by too early 
training, which will account for the small fields that now contend for many

a rich prize. A move in this direction would doubtless not be pleasing to the 
executives of the Spring meetings, but happily at Lincoln the growing popu- 
larity of cross-country racing might avail in the re-establishment of the Grand 
Annual Steeplechase in lieu of the Brocklesby Stakes ; and here the writer 
will venture to state his belief that the stamina so evidently wanting in the 
thoroughbred horses of our time will stand a better chance of being restored 
by steeplechasing than by racing on the flat as at pt'esent conducted. The 
turf legislation of the present day is all in favour of the gambling fraternity 
by sanctioning so many sprint races, but which the general visitors to the 
racecourses take no interest in and do not care about seeing, the majority of 
them being contested by a lot of spindle-shanked, useless, half-brokendown 
horses. This kind of racing should be altered by the establishment of long- 
distance contests, and, unless that is done, the only chance of the lost stamina 
of our horses being recovered rests with the National Hunt stewards and the 
bold company of gentlemen cross-country riders, with the Hon. Reginald Ward 
at their head, who have shown such good sport during the whole of the 
racing interregnum. 

There is no room to doubt that the " Grand National " brought to issue 
this year occasioned more interest and more speculation than either the 
Lincolnshire Handicap or the Brocklesby Stakes, and it is not surprising that 
it should have done so when no fewer than seven gentlemen riders took part 
in this great cross-country contest ; but although they fought hard, particu- 
larly the Hon. Reginald Ward, on Cathel, for victory, through a blinding 
snowstorm, none of them were destined to achieve the honoui-s of the day, 
which fell to Gourley, an Irish professional jockey, riding Mr. Adam's bay 
horse, Drogheda by Cherry Ripe, beating a field of twenty-four runners in 
9min. 48sec. — a great performance considering the untoward circumstances 
under which the race was run. 

The success of DrogJieda was the fourth victory achieved by county Meath 
bred horses for the Grand National, the three preceding winners being 
Manifesto (the victor in 1897, beating twenty-seven horses), Anatis (in 1860, 
beating nineteen), and Abd-el-Kader, a dual winner of that great event, 
having won it in 1850, beating thirty-two horses (the largest field that ever 
started for a steeplechase) in 9m. 57|sec. ; and again in 1851 beating Maria 
Bay after a most desperate race, by a short half neck, and twenty-three 
other runners, in 9m. 59sec. Manifesto was bred in 1888 by Mr. H. M. Dyas 
in the neighbourhood of Navan, not far from the Kilberry Stud, where Wink- 
Jield is located, and is by Man of War (son of Ben Battle) out of Vce Victis by 
King Victor (son of Fazzoletto), her dam by Ion out of Rhedydna by Wintonian ; 
but curiously enough the other three vdnners were all foaled in that little 
corner of the great county Meath extending from Bellewstown Hill to the 
town of Drogheda, at the mouth of " Boyne's ill fated river," and whence the 
winner has his name. 

Anatis, bred by Mr. R. Langan (and probably foaled in the same paddock 
on Bellewstpwn Hill, wherein Wild Sheoi-y the sire of Sirdar first saw light) 
was by King Ban (son of Philip I.) out of Johnstoion La^s by Carloio, whose 
first foal was The Switcher by Ishmael, a winner of many steeplechases for the

popular Lord Strathmore. Ahd-el-Kader was bred by the writer at Dardis- 
town Castle, situate on the Nanny water, a river well known to the disciples 
of Isaac Walton, taking its rise near Navan and running parallel with, and 
about three miles distant from, the Boyne into the Irish Sea — a limestone 
district, most of it able to feed a bullock and a sheep to the acre, growing the 
right kind of grass to put bone into the horses reared v;pon it. There Ahd-el- 
Kader first saw light the same year The Switcher was foaled, being also by the 
same sire Ishmael out of English Lass by Hit or Miss, whose further breeding 
is unknown ; and in the same district bixt nearer to the Boyne, Mr. G. ¥. 
Gradwell bred Droyheda, whose pedigree is so good a study for breeders that 
it is here given in brief : —

Here is a wonderful pedigree bearing out to the full what has been 
already noticed, that nearly all the great winners during the last two or three 
decades spring from a combination of the blood of Birdcatcher, Toixchstone, 
Harhaway, Blachloch, Melbourne, and Pocahontas, and that where the name of 
the latter appears two or three times in a pedigree, horses so bred are almost 
invariably good performers. Unfortunately, Drogheda is the only produce of 
his dam Eglentine, who was bred by Mr. J. C. Murphy, at the Oberstown 
Stud, CO. Kildare, in 1892. In the following year she missed to Atheling, and 
died before foaling in 1894. How much of Drogheda' s goodness may be owing 
to his sire Cherry Ripe no one can tell, but being a son of such a splendid 
" individual," as our cousins in the United States would call Energy's full 
brother, it is doubtless very considerable, for the fact remains that Cherry 



xl 



INTR OD UCTION. 



Eipe is the sire of several good horses besides, namely, Hed Heart, Morello, 
Bally alhany, etc. Drogheda won three races for Mr. Gradwell in 1897, and 
was sold to his present owner for l,500gs., and a further 300gs. should he win 
the Grand National. While dilating on the breeding of steeplechase horses, 
it may be stated that Keelson who won the rich cross-country prize at Man- 
chester, and who is by Panzer schiff out of Red Shoes by Galophi, her dam Red 
Spectre by Carnelion out of Red Rag by Lord Lyon has, like Drogheda, 
Pocahontas twice in his pedigree, and still more of the blood of Birdcatcher, 
Touchstone, Blacklock, and Melbourne ; and it is a fact that all the rich prizes 
run for so far this season have been won by horses whose breeding runs in the 
same groove. Pan^erscAi^wasi undoubtedly the greatest loss sustained by the 
British Stud of late years. He ought never to have been allowed to go out of 
England, and it is to be hoped that the Marquis of Zetland, who has only 
leased his son Keelson to Mr. Cunningham, may rehabilitate the Aske 
paddocks with some of his progeny when put to the stud. 

Turning now to Part I., it will be seen that seventy-eight of the principal 
stallions covering in the United Kingdom during 1898 and following seasons 
are advertised in this volume, together with theii- pedigrees and performances 
in full ; and dividing them according to their descent from the three great 
sires. Eclipse, Herod, and Matchem, through the amalgamation of whose blood 
the breeders of old found the best results, they will be found to stand thus : —

Thus sixty-four of the seventy-eight distinguished sires named above 
descend from FotSos, King Fergus, and Joe Andrews, three of the great sons 
of Eclipse, no fewer than forty-one of whom come to us through PotSos, a 
very distinguished party to have h.b. written after their names, owing to 
having Thwaite's Dun mare as their ancestress, were any faith to be placed 
in Mr. Bruce Lowe's opinion formed from her colour. Herod is represented 
in the male line by only eight sires, while Matchem has only four representa- 
tives, notwithstanding that his " tap-root " is the Layton Barb mare, Mr. Bruce 
Lowe's No. 4, though he makes no mention of her being so, which shows 
he hardly read the " Stud Book " so deeply as he is given credit for doing. 
But now let us see what were the performances of the progeny of the above 
sires during the racing season of 1897 ; it will not only interest breeders, 
but the followers of the national pastime, as likely to throw some light on 
the probable issue of the classic races of the present year of grace, 1898. 
Weather by's "Racing Calendar" shows us that the progeny of three hundred 
and twenty sires won races during the past year, of whom we here set forth 
a list of the most successful, which will be not only useful for present 
reference, but for all time to come. It will be remembered that for five 
years St. Simon, a descendant of Eclipse through King Fergus, held a very 
decided front place among all the stallions of the United Kingdom, and 
looked as if he was never to be deposed until he took his departure to the 
" happy hunting grounds." Those that thought so reckoned without their 
host, as owing to the series of gi'eat %actories achieved by Galtee More last 
year, supplemented by the excellent performance of Greenlawn, their sire, 
Kendal, a descendant of PotSos, has the honour of holding the first place 
among the winning sires for 1897, as may be here seen : —

Fifteen winners of thirty-one races worth £28,817 10«. 



Galtee More, as is now known to all the world, is an Irish horse, bred by- 
Mr. John Gubbins at Bruree House, County Limerick, situate in the district 
known as the " Golden Vein," from the luxuriance of its pasturage, and 
upon which many a grand horse has been raised before now, one of which 
may be specially mentioned here, Salamander, winner of the " Grand National " 
in 1886, beating a field of thirty horses. That Galtee More was bound to be 
a great horse may be seen from his breeding, which will be found in extenso 
at page 16, where his full brother, Blairfinde, will be found advertised, and 
whose services may be had at the very moderate fee of 50gs. And here 
it will be only right to point out the fact to breeders that, had not Blairfinde 
injured a sinew when running at the Curragh for the Irish Derby, which 
he won by ten lengths from Hartsioion, ^vith such good performers as 
Hebron and Gazeteer behind him, he might have taken precedence of Galtee 
More, and been the first Irish-bred horse to win the Derby. 

In the breeding of Galtee More the little (and very misleading) use of the 
"figure system" is further seen, as the Arab or Barb "taf-root" of Kendal 
is unknown, a fact that concerns the whole of the Agnes family, though it 
does not invalidate their goodness, as might be inferred from Mr. Bruce 
Lowe's theory. As, in Persimmon, so far as the " tap-roots " are concerned, 
the blood of the Burton Barb preponderates in Galtee More and Blairfinde, 
and if there Ls any weight in the *' figures," a more important fact is that 
their first dam is the same Royal mare as Eclijise is descended from. But 
putting aside such balderdash as that any goodness can attach to the horses 
of the present day from their " tap-roots," there is sufiicient to show, in 
Blairfinde's pedigree, the excellent judgment that was exercised in mating 
Morganette with Kendal to breed two such good looking individuals, as our 
American cousins would call them, as Blairfinde and Galtee More. They 
are in-bred to Stockwell and Thormanby. The value of Stockioell in a 
pedigree, bringing in as he does, on the side of his sire, the blood of Bird- 
catcher, Sir Hercules, and Whalebone, and on that of his dam, Pocahontas, 
the blood of Glencoe, Tramp, and Orville, is known to breeders all over the 
world ; but not so Thormanby, an equally good, if not better, performer on 
the turf than the "Emperor of Stallions." Unfortunately he died early; 
but happily the owner of the premier stud of England, the Duke of West- 
minster, recognised his value, and bred from his daughter Pouge Pose that 
splendid performer on the racecourse and excellent stallion Bend Or, so 
without the pair the British stud would have had no Kemlal or Morganette, 
from whose union has sprung the great horse of 1897. Then the pedigree 
of Greenlawn (see page 58), shows how well the blood of Thormanby in 
Kendal nicked with that of Thorynanby in his dam Btula, who has besides iu

her many of the same strains of blood as there are in Kendal — notably those 
of Venison, The Baron, and Pocahontas. In regard to the other winners by 
Kendal, his daughter Kendale showed excellent form, but her dam, Vanquish 
by Victor, is dead, so needs no further reference ; and most of the others, being 
also bred in Ireland out of indifferent mares, require no further notice. Though 
deposed from the first place by Kendal, the second is easily held by : —

Sixteen winners of twenty-two races worth £22,541. 

Persimmon, like Galtee More for Kendal, did yeoman service for >S'^. Simxm, 
winning a grand total of ^12,665 iij two races, including the Gold Cup at 
Ascot, which he won so easily by eight lengths from WinkfieWs Pride, Love 
Wisely, and Limasol, that he may fairly claim to be the horse of the century, 
if we except Harlcaway ; for great hoi'se as Ormonde undoubtedly was, he 
never ran a cup course — and it may be questioned if at any time he beat such 
good horses as WinkfieWs Pride and Love Wisely. The full pedigree of 
Persimmon is given elsewhere, back to his Arab or Barb ancestors, to whom 
i-eference has been already made, showing that he is in-bred to the Burton 
Barh mare and several of the Royal mares. That being so, he could not but 
be in-bred to the many famous runners descended from them, the most noted 
of whom in the male Hne during the last three-quarters of a century have 
been Voltigeur, Vedette, Galopin, Birdcatcher, The Flying Dutchman, Harhaway, 
King Tom, Lord Glifden, Rataplan, Kettledrum, Lanercost, Stochwell, and 
St. Albans, all splendid "individuals" in regard to make, shape, and action; 
while the females to be found in his pedigree, descended from the same 
"tap-roots," include Martha Lynn, Barhelle, Merope, Flying Duchess, Poca- 
hontas, St. Angela, Adeline, Little Fairy, Lacerta, The Slave, Volley, Hyhla, 
Bribery, Ellen Middleton, Teterrima, La Belle Helene, Hermione, and Perdita II., 
all of whom earned great distinction at the stud. But the above list does not 
include all the male and female celebrities in the pedigree of Persimmon, for 
there are besides descended from other different "tap-roots" within the period 
named, Ion, Touchstone, Newminster, Hampton, Melbourne, and Pantaloon, 
together with, on the female side, such celebrities as Beeswing and Queen 
Mary, of whose Arab or Barb descent nothing is known beyond her being a 



xliv INTR OD UCTION. 



daughter of the grey Arabian Oysterfoot ; and then it is to be observed that 
the Arab or Barb source from whom Economist (the sire of Harkaway and 
Echidna, dam of The Baron) descends is unknown. Nevertheless, the pedigree 
of Persimmon is not to be excelled in the whole range of the " Stud Book,' 
and being a grand " individual," he is bound to perpetuate the fame of his 
sire, St. Simo7i, at the stud. In the "Stud Book" record of foals for 1897, 
there is proof of the wonderful vitality of St. Simon, as he is there returned 
as the sire of no fewer than forty foals (now yearlings) — twenty -one colts and 
nineteen fillies, three of the former of whom died in foaling and two fillies, 
including a full sister to St. Frusquin. 

The next most successful stallion during 1897 was the superbly bred

Nineteen winners of thirty-three races worth £16,745 10*. 

By far the most successful of the nineteen winners with which Ayrshire 
stands credited is Oi'zil, whose breeding and performances are worth looking 
up in connection with the Derby and other classic races in which he is 
engaged. Trained at Phantom Hou.se, Newmarket, by Mr. T. Jennings, Junr., 
he took five races, which he won off the reel, followed by three successive 
defeats. In his winning races, the most notable of the horses he beat include 
Perthshire, to whom he gave 41b. and a three-length beating for the Woodcote 
Stakes at Epsom ; Cap Martin, Heir Male, Bait, and Bittern at Ascot ; Jeddah 
and Ayah at Newmarket ; while he was beaten by Dieudonne for the Middle 
Park Plate, by Ninus (in receipt of 171b. from him) at Sandown Park, and 
by Hawfinch (getting 71b.) for the Dewhurst Plate. OrziVs dam. Merry Miser, 
was most suitably mated when put to Ayrshire, as in their combined blood 
there are six strains of Birdcatcher, five strains of Touchstone, four of 
Pocahontas, and one of Melbourne, which, as previously sho-vvn, is the blood 
from which the greater number of winners of the present day spring; so 
Orzil is bound to have a great look in for the forthcoming classic races, and is 
very likely to follow in the footsteps of his sire Ayrshire and take the Derby. 



INTRODUCTION. xlv 



The additions made to Part II. of this volume will enable breeders to see for 
themselves, by tabulating their pedigrees, that Merry Miser was the best 
suited for Ayrshire of all the mares put to him, and hence the brilliant success 
of Orzil last year, when, as may be learned from Weatherby's Supplement to 
the *' Stud Book," Ayrshire was credited with being the sire of twelve colts 
and seven fillies (now yearlings), one of the former of whom, the son of 
Madge Gray by Galliard, is dead. 

The fourth most successful sire in 1897 also belongs to the Welbeck 
Stud, viz. : —

Ten winners of seventeen races worth £12,816. 

Velasquez, like Galtee More, Persimmon, and Orzil, takes a long precedence 
of all the other progeny of Donovan in regard to the amount won by him in 
1897. This is, however, not at all surprising, considering what a successful 
brood mare his dam Vista has proved to be in producing Bonavista to JBeml 
Or, and *S'iV Visto to Barcaldine, besides Velasquez to Donovan; and it was 
hard on Lord Rosebery, the latter being foaled in the same year as such a good 
horse as Galtee More, for otherwise there is no doubt Velasquez would have won 
the *' triple crown," as did the Irish horse. An examination of the pedigrees 
of these three fine sons of Vista shows, however, notwithstanding the brilliant 
form of both Sir Visto and Velasquez, that she was more suitably mated when 
put to Bend Or than to either Barcaldine or Donovan, on account of the fine 
blood of Pantaloon, Witulhound, and Alice Hawthorn being brought into him 
by Thormanhy, being also in Vista through Lady Hawthorn, the great-grand- 
dam of the latter. Donovan has been returned foi- 1897 as the sire of nine 
colts and seven fillies (now yearlings), a colt out of Miss Langden by Silver 
Croion, besides a foal (no sex given) out of Leap Frog by Queen's Messenger, 
being dead. 

The fifth in the list is Donovan's sire,

Fifteen winners of twenty-three races worth £12,370 10«. 



A filly, Goletta, stands at the head of Galophis fifteen winners, credited with 
a sum little short of half the total sum of the .£12,370 10s. won by this 
famous sire's progeny in 1897. The dam of this successful filly is Biserta by 
Lord Lyon out of Parma by Parmiesan [Sweetmeat — Veiidam — Touchet), her 
dam Archeress by Longhoio [Ithuriel by Touchstone— Verbeiui by Velocipede — 
Miss Bowe by Catton) — Tingle by Slane — Vibration by Sir Hercules — Edw by 
Emilius, etc. This mare, become very famovis through her progeny, was bred 
by Mr. Tom Price in 1880, and is the dam of fourteen foals, including, besides 
Goletta, Utica by St. Simon, and Ayah by Ayrshire. Any one tabulating 
Biserta's pedigree will find in it three strains of Touchstone, one of Birdcatcher, 
one of Pocahontas, and four of Bkccklock, while the same blood to be found in 
Galopin includes only one strain of Birdcatcher and three of Blacklock ; and 
the same blood in Ayrshire comprises three strains of Touchstone, three of 
Birdcatcher, four of Blacklock, two of Pocahontas, and one of Melbourne, 
which leads to the impression, so far as concerns the winning blood of the 
day, that Ayah, who is Biserta's daughter by Ayrshire, ought to at least 
obtain as great success on the racecourse as Goletta has done. Then, in 
regard to Disi-aeli, who has been backed for the Derby, the pedigree of his 
dam. Lady Yardley, is deser\ang of looking up. She was foaled in 1878, and 
is by Sterling, her dam Leda by Weatherbit — Wish by Touchstone, her dam 
Hope by Midey Moloch — Peter Lely — Dan John dam. There is consequently 
in Disraeli a great accumulation of "classic" blood, as the names of the 
following Derby and St. Leger winners will be found in his pedigree : — Waxy, 
Whalebone, Sir Peter, Beningbro', Orville, Hambletonian, Filho-da-Pttta, 
Emilius, Priam, Ple7ii2)otentiary, Bay Middleton, Touchstone, Voltigeur, and 
Galopin, and as like gets like, Disraeli will very probably be hailed the winner 
of the Derby, 1898.

almost to the last, although almost a cripple from rheumatism. Although 
History, Bay Bonald, Chiselhamjiton, and Martoii (also recently dead) greatly 
distinguished themselves in 1897, as will be seen in the above record, 
Hampton, has left no great three-year-old behind him to require notice ; 
but a few of his two-year-olds may come to the front during the season; 
and according to the " Stud Book " return he was the sire in 1897 of two 
colts and eight fillies (now yearlings), one of each sex being dead. The 
seventh on the list is : —

This grandly bred horse promised even greater things than is shown in

We have here almost the last of the progeny of a very great stallion, the 
son of Blinkhoolie and Aline, being thus closely in-bred to the great Stockwell, 
and the early death of whom was a great blow to the British Stud. Happily, 
however, he has left behind him Love Wisely, a still more in-bred horse 
than himself, and who may be regarded as the perfection of breeding. His 
dam, Lovelorn, is by Philammon [Solon — Satinella by Wild Dayrell), out of 
Gone by The Lizard {Honiton — dam by Sweetmeat, granddam by Touchstone), 
her dam Vaiiish by Honiton (Stockicell, dam by Sidtan, granddam by Sur- 
plice) out of Retreat by Orlando, etc. So there are in Love Wisely five strains 
of Birdcatcher, four through Stockicell, which brings in four of Pocahontas, 
five of Touchstone, and six of Blacklock, with one of 2Ielhourne, a very grand 
pedigree, so that he was bound to be a good performer and must make an 
invaluable stallion. It was a great blunder on the part of those who backed 
Velasquez at even weights to beat him for the Jockey Club Stakes, and it 
was a great performance on the part of that young horse to run him so 
closely as he did.

The success of this handsome young stallion was assured from the first, 
and the victory Comfrey achieved for the Cambridge has added not a little to 
his prestige. Sir William Ingram, like a true sportsman, ran him out for all 
his twelve engagements, of which he won no fewer than nine, thus proving 
himself to be a game, honest horse. It is consequently worth while to examine

his breeding. His dam >S'i. Frida is by Cylinder {See Saio — Ratajylan — Touch- 
stone), her dam by Vesjxisian {Neiominster — Vesta by Stockwell) — Entremet 
by Sioeetmeat {Gladiator — Lollypop by Voltaire), her dam Crystal by Pantaloon 
{Castrel — Idalia by Peruvian) — Katherine by Camel. Despair being a great 
grandson of Wild Dayrell, there could be no better mate selected for him than 
St. Frida, who is the great-granddaughter of the Derby winner of 1855 ; and 
other corresponding blood in both is taken from Gladiator and Tovx:hstone, of 
whom there are four strains, two on each side of the house, but there is no 
Birdcatcher blood in Despair to correspond with that in aS'^. Frida. In fact, 
Despair is a singular instance of being quite free of the blood that has given 
so many celebrities to the turf and stud of the United Kingdom. It will be 
seen above that a chestnut colt, full brother to Comfrey, is also returned as a 
winner in the record.

Here we have the blood of Ormonde coming to the front in a very startling 
manner, for Martagon is brother in blood to the expatriated celebrity. The 
record above points to his having achieved his greate.st success with Hermit 
mares, there being three, in the return of whom Fleur de Marie is by far the 
largest winner. Her further breeding is — dam Princess May II. by Toxo- 
philite {Longbovj — Legerdemain by Pantaloon), granddam by Y. Melbourne 
{Melbourne — Clarissa by Pantaloon) — TJie Rescued by Orlando, her dam 
Physalis by Bay Middleton — Baleine by Whalebone. There is but little 
corresponding blood in this pedigree with that of Martagon beyond that of 
Bay Middleton, Touchstone, and Pantaloon ; and but for these three being in 
both pedigrees, Champ de Mars might be classed as an out-bred horse. 
Flower Girl, the dam of Caj) Martin, is by Hermit, her dam Isabel by Rata-

1 INTRODUCTION. 



Although with many strains of the winning blood of the day in his veins, 
and though he won the Cambridgeshii-e, Sailor Prince was by no means at the 
top of the tree as a racehorse ; but as a sire he has shown, since his deporta- 
tion to America, the excellent blood that is in him by getting several good 
winners — five of whom, on being brought to England in 1897, carried ofT 
fifteen races, worth £8,527. How their dams are bred may be known by an 
examination of the Amei'ican " Stud Book."

Nine winners of twelve races worth £7,974. 

Here we have a fourth representative of Blacklock (through Speculum) 
among the principal winning sires of 1897, descended in direct female line 
from the Royal mare whence we have Eclipse, and that Aviphion did credit 
by his performances on the turf to his high descent goes without saying; 
while his doings at the stud, as recorded above, show, thus early, that he is 
likely to acquii-e as great fame as a stallion as he did as a racehorse. The 
most distinguished of his progeny, so far, is Dieudonne, whose dam, 2[on 
Droit, is by Isonomy {Sterling — Isola Bella by Stockivell) — In Bounds by 
Hermit, her dam Boundary by Stockwell — Bribery by The Libel, etc. Any 
one that tabulates Dieudonne s pedigree will find he is full of the winning 
blood of the day ; and it shows what a close student of pedigree his Grace the 
Duke of Devonshire is when he put Mon Droit to Amphion. By winning the 
Imperial Produce Stakes and the Middle Park Plate in the style he did, shows 
that Dieudonne is every inch a racehorse of very high form, and though 
defeated by Haivfinch and JVinus in the Dewhurst Plate, it must not be 
forgotten that he was giving Hawfinch lOlb. and Xinus 61b. over a course a 
furlong longer than that over which the Middle Park Plate is run ; so that 
all good judges of racing will see that the ability of Dieudonne to win the 
Derby must not be measured by his running for the Dewhurst Plate. 
Amphion also appears to hit with Sjyringfield mares, as proved by Amphm'u, 
who faii'ly ran away with the Stewards' Plate at Goodwood, and King of 
Thebes, who won the Cheveley Stakes in a canter, the only race for which he 
started. 

Besides the above Avinning sires in 1897, the "Book Racing Calendar" 
tells us that three hundred and twenty other stallions are credited with 
getting winners, of whom the progeny of the following thirty-six won <£3,000 
and upwards. The pedigrees of the horses marked thus (*) will be found in 
this volume : — -

Bona Vista need hardly be alluded to, as he has been sold abroad, to the 
very great loss of the British stud, as in his first year, from a very limited 
number of mares, he is the sire of four winners, including CylleMe, who took 
four good races worth =£7,015, and is by many good judges considered the best 
two-year-old of 1897. Cyllenes dam is Arcadia by Isonomy — Distant Shore 
by Hermit — Land's End by Trumfeter, and now that the services of Bona 
Vista won't be available, Arcadia would be well mated if put to Morion, as 
there would be a chance of her breeding to him as good a horse as WinkfceUVs 
Pride, whose dam. Alimony, is by Isonomy — Alibeck by Hermit, thus being 
bred much alike to Cyllene's dam. 

Eoyal Hampton, whose progeny are credited with winning twenty races 
worth £7,134, has, from the fir.st start of his stud career, been a success, and 
now that his sire has taken his departure to the " happy hunting grounds," 
must be considered as the head of the great family of Hampton, and is well 
entitled to be held in the same regard as his departed sire. Royal Footsteps 
last year proved to be the best of his progeny, as she won three races worth 
,£2,369, and she is very likely to take the Oaks and many other races this 
year. Her dam is Lightfoot by Muncaster — Footlight by Cremorne, her dam 
Paraffin by Blair Athol — Paradigm by Paragone (Touchstone), her dam Ellen 
Home by Redshank — a pedigree full of winning blood — and that Mr. Tom 
Castle, Sir Blundell Maple's manager, displayed excellent judgment in putting 



lii INTR OD UCTION. 



her to Roycd Hamilton there can be no question, as can be seen by any one 
who chooses to tabulate their pedigrees, and any one that does so must not 
overlook that Paraffin bred Illuminata, who, having been mated to Hampton^ 
the result was Ladas. It should be remembered, too, that Vesuvian, winner 
of the St. James' Palace Stakes at Ascot, is also a son of Royal Hampton. 

The progeny of Sheen, another son of Hampton, are returned as having 
won ,£6,509, the chief contributor to which was Lysander (now 4yrs.), who 
won three races worth .£1,325. His dam is Love in Idleness by Mask — 
Lucetta by Tibihorpe, her dam Verona by Orlando, etc. Sheens two-year-old 
sons, Batt and Ninus, were also good winners in 1897, and are very likely to 
have a good look in for some of the classic races. The first-named belongs to 
the Duke of Westminster, and is out of Vampire by Galopin, her dam Irony by 
Rosehery — Sarcasm by Breadalbane — Jeu d'Espi'it by Flatcatcher — Extempore 
by Emilius, etc., a splendidly bred mare, with many strains of blood in her 
very suitable to nick with the same in Sheen. The dam of Ninus, who 
belongs to Prince Soltykoff', the owner of Sheen, is Nina (bred by the late 
much lamented Duke of Hamilton), got by Loidander ovit of his famous 
mare Music by Stochtvell, her dam One Act by Annandale — Extravaganza by 
Voltaire, etc., another famously bred mare, whose blood is well suited to nick 
with Sheen, his dam being Radiancy by Tihthorpe {Voltigeur — The Cure — 
Birdcatcher) — Meteor by Thunderbolt (Stock)i:ell) — Dicfy by Rifleman, one of 
Touchstone's best sons. Surely there is " selection " in this mating. 

Minting, it will be seen in the list above, is beginning to make headway^ 
and it is very probable he will yet fulfil the great expectations formed of him 
from the high form he showed on the racecoui-se. His two-year-olds. Ferment, 
Maisie, and Minton did him good service in 1897. The former took two 
good prizes at the Curragh, amounting together to ^723. The dam of this 
smart filly is Ferooza by Rosia-ucian — Anonyma by Restitution, her dam 
Euphorbia by Touchwood, and who bred nine foals, the best of whom, after 
Ferment, is Sauteuse. 

Three of the progeny of Goldfinch wpheXdi the fame of Ormonde by winning 
three races worth £0,047 ; so, although a roarer, he must be regarded as a 
great loss to the breeders of the United Kingdom. They were — Chelandry, 
winner of the Oaks and second for the St. Leger ; llavflnch, winner of the 
Dewhvirst Plate; and Monterey, winner of the Zetland Plate, in which he 
defeated Goletta over the Bunbury Mile. The pedigrees of all these are well 
worth being studied by breeders, because, although Goldfinch is beyond their 
reach, they can have the service of Bend Or (still in his prime) and his fine 
son, Orvieto, who has already given evidence that, like Bona Vista, he will 
uphold the fame of the Doncaster line of Birdcatcher. 

Bend Ors progeny, fourteen in number, avou twenty-two races, worth 
X6,024. His largest winner is Mr, Charles Perkins' colt out of Jenny Iloivlet 
(winner of the Oaks in 1880, same year that Bend Or took the Derby) by The 
Palmer, her dam Jenny Driver by Buccaneer — Fairy by Warloch, etc., a fine 
mare who, although she bred Chittabob, has been otherwise an unaccountable 
failure at the stud. The next largest winner is Rapallo, full brother to 
Orvieto, Laveno, and Ortolo, their dam being Napoli by Macaroni — Sunshine 



INTR OD UCTION. liii 



by Thormanhy, etc. It will thus be seen that Mr. J. H. Houldsworth stuck 
most loyally to Bend Or, and not without reason, as in mating Napoli to him 
he brought into her further strains of Thormanby, Pantaloon, Birdcatchevj 
and Blacklock — hence the success obtained by their progeny. 

Although some time gone to the " happy hunting grounds," Barcaldine's 
posthumous children still uphold his fame, as eleven of them won nineteen 
prizes of the aggregate value of £5,659 (and while writing these figures the 
news has come that Prince Barcaldine has achieved a great victory for the 
Lincolnshire Handicap). Rush ran a gi-eat horse in the Cesarewitch, being 
only beaten by a neck, according 121b. to Merman (which there is no reason 
he should have been made to give) ; but his largest winners were Bradwardine, 
Brechin, Dumbarton, and Prince Barcaldine, the breeding of which there is no 
occasion to look up, unless, indeed, in the interest of his sons, of whom there 
are several at the stud, including the handsome, grandly bred Sir Visto. 

Satiety, considering he has not been patronised to anything like his deserts, 
does fairly well Avith eight winners, the most successful of whom has been 
Silver Fox, who won five races worth £2,446. That Silver Fox ought to be 
good is plain enough, for his dam is Silver Lea by Hermit, her dam Stray Shot 
by Toxophilite — Vaga by Stockivell. This is another case of choice " selection," 
as the pedigrees of both his sire and dam correspond in many strains of blood, 
the principal of which are Birdcatcher and Touchstone. 

Friar's Balsam (anticipated in the last volume of the Horse-breeders' Hand- 
book as likely to fill successfully the place vacated by his deceased sire. Hermit) 
has also done well with fourteen winners of eighteen races worth .£5,300. 
Bcdsamo is his best representative, as he won the City and Suburban and the 
New Biennial Stakes at Ascot, worth together £2,225. His dam is Snood by 
Barcaldine — Chajylet (whence Jlorion and Winhfield) by Rosicriman, her dam 
Madame Eglentine by Coirl. The pedigree of Friar's Balsam not being at 
hand, those requiring to know more about Balsamo must themselves look up 
his breeding in the " Stud Book." Besides Tristan, who is dead, two fau-ly 
successful Hermit stallions are Melanion and Hazlehatch. The former, who 
has been sold abroad, there is no occasion to refer to; but Hazlehatch is 
deserving of favourable notice, as being the sii-e of Birch Rod, an exceedingly 
smart filly, who won several races in 1896, and took three last year worth 
£1,096. Her dam is Flight by Thunderbolt — Alarum by Alarm — Marie 
Vincent by Simoon. This is a very old mare, as she was foaled in 1873, but, 
notwithstanding her fine breeding, \vas not a successful brood mare, so it 
speaks well for the vigour of Hazlehatch to be the sire of so fine and good a 
filly as Birch Rod. Hazlehatch's pedigree will be found in Part I., p. 62. 

Next comes — by a long way the most distinguished and successful stallion 
in Ireland — Gallimde, who, notwithstanding his services being confined almost 
entu*ely to Irish mares, is the sire of twelve winners of eighteen races, 
amounting to £5,026, a fact that would point to the increasing prosperity of 
the Irish turf, were it not that the greater part of that large sum was won in 
England. Col. Paget is the owner of the two most successful of Gallimde s 
progeny — viz., Sirenia, who took four races at the Curragh and Leopards- 
town worth £1,506, and Waterhen, who also won four races at the same 



li V INTR OD UCTION. 



meetings of the value of £1,091. The dam of Sirenia, a filly reckoned to be 
exceedingly smart (bred by Mr. N. B. Johnson), is Concussion by Reverbera- 
tion (^Thunderbolt — Ilarkaway — Little lied Rover) — Astwith by Wenlock {Lm'd 
Clifden — Rataplan — Birdcatcher), her dam sister to RysMcorth by Skirviislier, 
a pedigree as full of the most successful running blood of the day as that of 
Gallimde himself. Consequently Concussion was well fitted from such a 
union, to produce a good runner. Gallinule is also the sire of Wildfoioler, a 
winner of three races worth £1,657, and who is bound, from the easy manner 
he beat St. la, Tears of Joy, and Nun Nicer, and finishing a close third for 
the Middle Park Plate, to Dieudonne and Disraeli, beaten a head -only for 
second place, to be a formidable competitor for some of the classic races. 
Wildfowlers dam is Tragedy hj Ben Battle — ]]liite Witch hy JIassinissa, her 
dam Jeu de Mots by King Tom, and a mare whose blood is very well suited 
to nick with that of Gallinule. 

Another splendidly bred son of Isonomy is Common, who has only so far 
been fortunate in getting anything superior with one of his mates, Priestess, 
the dam of Nun Nicer. Priestess is by Hermit, her dam by Lm'd Lyon — 
Sadie by Voltigeur, a fine combination of winning blood very suitable to mate 
with Common, who, though not yet near the front, may soon be expected to 
make a big move in that direction, from the number of fine mares put 
to him. According to the "Stud Book" return he was sire, in 1897, of 
twelve colts and five fillies (now yearlings), all living and holding out great 
future promise. 

Aughrim, a good runner and full of the splendid blood of Waxy (some 
twenty strains), who was never given a chance in Ireland, except what his 
late well-known and popular owner. Col. Jesse Lloyd, gave him, has, since his 
death, been taken in hand by his son-in-law, Mr. Porter Poi-ter, and removed 
to the Hill Green Stud Farm, Peasemore, Newbury, Berks (see page 3), 
where his services can be had at the very moderate fee of 30gs., and, as the 
sire of the sterling good runner Count Schomberg, ought surely to have a very 
full list this season. 

Galliard is making some headway, but nothing like what might have been 
expected from such a splendidly bred son of Galojnn ; but it is different with 
another of that celebrated horse's sons, St. Angela (now the occupant of the 
same box that tenanted the famous PocaJiontas at the Burghley Stud), who is 
making rapid strides to the front, as four of the three-year-olds by him and 
ten of his two-year-olds won, in 1897, twenty races worth £4,277. His most 
successful son is Sir Geoffrey the second produce of the beautifully bred La 
Vierge by Hampton — Elizabeth b}- Statesman — Fair Rosamond by King John. 

Grafton, another of Galojnn's sons, also did well in 1897; but as he died 
early in the year 1895, there is no occasion to refer to his progeny. 

Enthusiast has done well, for his four winners took eight races worth 
£4,773 last year ; but, nevertheless, breeders have sadly overlooked this 
horse, for his breeding cannot be excelled (by Sterling — Cheii'y Duchess by 
The Duke, blood that attained great success a few years back, and is sure to 
do so again). Happily Enthusiast is now attached to the Hartstown Stud, 
CO. Dublin, Mr. James Daly having fortunately secured his services, so lie 



INTRODUCTION. Iv 



will now have some good mares put to bim. His best winner in 1897 was 
Eager, with ,£4,032 to his credit. He is the best produce of Greeba, by 
Melton out of Sunrise by Sjjringfield — Sunray by King of the Forest — a 
splendidly bred ruare, who was most suitably mated when put to Enthusiast. 

And here the success of Doubloon, a hoise of the same blood and in 
the stud of Mr. W. Gardner, at Exning, Newmarket, should not be over- 
looked, as four of his progeny appropriated races worth ^3,745, the best of 
them being Dubuque, a brown colt out of Ivy Mantle by Mask, her dam Ej^omcea 
by Sp'ingjield — Ivy by King of the Forest — Necklace by The Fallow Buck. 

Bread Knife, now the companion of Bunbury at the stud of Mr. John 
Robinson, of Worksop Manor, near Worksop, and not far from the famous 
Welbeck Stud, has quite fulfilled the anticipations formed of the likelihood of 
his becoming a sire of great note. Thirteen of his progeny won, in 1897, 
twenty -three races of the value of =£4,791, among them being The Baker, who 
is credited with six of them. His dam is Crusado, bred by Mr. James Snarry 
in 1889, by Uncas — Helen Palmer, her dam La Belle Helene by St. Albans, the 
same mare who forms a factor in the pedigree of Persimmon. Here the Bird- 
catcher blood is very prominent, whereby there are three strains of Stockivell 
and Pocahontas to be found in The Baker, and hence, in a great measure, his 
success. 

Though dead since 1894, Roseberfs name still holds a prominent place 
in the winning hst, as the sire of five winners who took twelve races 
of the value of ,£4,659, the chief contributor to which was Knight of the 
Thistle, who, notwithstanding his being a roarer, won the Hunt Cup at Ascot, 
worth ,£2,370. The performance was, however, not much, as Victor Wild 
and Greenlawn, who ran second and third, were severally according him 351b. 
and 171b. It must, however, be borne in mind that his dam. The Empress 
Maid, bred Lady Rosebery, and that others of her produce, by Rosebery, have 
been successful to him, a good bit owing, no doubt, to the Blacklock blood 
in both. 

St. Serfh.Siii been a success at the stud from the first, which could hardly 
be otherwise, seeing that he is a son of St. Simon — Feronia by 7'hormanhy. 
He had, the year before last, five winners of five races worth £3,410, and in 
1897, eight winners of £4,470. St. la did best for him in 1897, as she won 
five races for Sir R. W. Grifiith, worth £1,992, and as he bred her it must 
have given him great pleasure to see her so successful. Her dam is Beren- 
garia (dam of Queens Favour by Favo) by George Frederick — Bon Accord by 
Adventurer — Darling s dam by Birdcatcher, etc., so St. Ta is a splendidly bred 
filly, so full of the successful running blood of the day, that she is very likely 
to place more than one of the classic i-aces to the credit of her owner. And 
here it may be mentioned that George Frederick, the maternal gi-andsire of 
St. la, being full of infirmity, his owner, Mr. Bryan Obear, of the Goodrock 
Stud, Crescent, Mo., in the United States, gave him the easy death of chloro- 
form, two years back, leaving behind him a splendid yearling colt it is 
Mr. Obear's intention to nominate for the Derby ; and now that it has been 
shown how easily horses bred at the other side of the broad Atlantic can 
win in England, more unlikely things have come to pass than that a son of 



Ivi INTRODUCTION. 



the winner of the " Blue Riband " of 1874 may emulate the deeds of his sire 
at Epsom in 1900 and take the Derby a second time to America. 

Poulet, with only two representatives, Murghi (winner of two good races 
in Ireland for Lord W. Beresford) and the fair Limasol, takes a high place 
in the winning list through her having won the Oaks, worth ^4,195. But 
that she should have done so is not at all surprising, for LirnasoVs dam is 
Queen of Cyprus, one of the choicest bred mares ever foaled, by King Tom — 
Cypriana by Epirus, her dam Cyprian by Partisan, who won the Oaks for 
John Scott in 1836. So, as like gets like, it was only natural that Limasol 
should follow in her footsteps and take the Ladies' race for Lord Hindlip, 
who soon after, to the deep regret of all who had the pleasure of his acquaint- 
ance, was called to another life. Catarina (full sister to Limasol) and Cypria 
by Carlton, both of whom could make good use of their legs, are also 
daughters of Queen of Cyprus, and that such a finely bi-ed horse as Poulet, by 
Peid-Etre (winner of the Cambridgeshire) — Prantaniere by Chattanooga, 
should be so neglected by breeders is quite incomprehensible. Now that one 
of Poulet' s progeny has won a great race, and that Mr. F. H. Jennings has 
taken him to the Cockfield Stud, he may be given a chance. 

Lactantius in 1897 quite fulfilled the expectations formed of him by his 
owner, Mr. Leopold de Rothschild, a gentleman well versed in pedigree and a 
believer in the necessity of careful " selection " being made in breeding horses 
to be successful on the turf ; while that there is no cooler or sounder judge 
of racing has been proved by the wonderfully victorious career which has 
attended neai-ly all the horses bred by him, under the management of Mr. E. 
Burroughs, at the South Court Stud, Leighton Buzzard. The handsome son 
of Petrarch and Koomis by Macaroni, it may be seen in Part L, p. 09, was 
raised at South Court, and that he has in him plenty of the winning blood of 
the day, taken from Touchstone, Birdcatcher, Pocahontas, Melbourne, and 
Blaclclock. This was quite suitable to nick with the same strains in Gay Lass, 
the dam of Gay I^jthair, and hence the smart form he showed in winning the 
Brocklesby Stakes in 1897 ; and which he has retained, as proved by his 
recently winning a good race this year over the same course at Lincoln. 

Tyrant has not yet been patronised at the stud to anything like the extent 
such a true, honest runner ought to be, consec^uently he is only in the record 
as the sire of six winners ; but as one of these, Masque II., has proved himself 
to be a real clinker, studmasters will see they have made a mistake in not 
breeding from the staying son of Beauclerc. Masque II. was bred in France 
by Mr. C, R. Halbron, for whom he won five valuable prizes worth £1,680, 
before being brought over the "silver streak" to contend for the Ascot 
Stakes, which (carrying 7st. 91b.) he won by a neck from Earioig (4yrs., 
7st. 101b.) second, Piety (4yrs., 8st. 71b.) third, and seventeen others — a 
stunning good performance, as he was giving away his year to Earwig (a 
good third in the great contest between Persimmon and St. Frusqidn for the 
Derby in 1896), and receiving only 121b. from Piety, who was beaten three 
lengths from the second. The dam of Masque II. is Maskery, bred at the 
Yardley Stud in 1886, by Mask — Lena by Illamlford (^The Ihike — Auricula by 
Ambrose — Pocahontas), her dam The Su-an by Sterling — Leda by Weatherbit, 



INTRODUCTION. Ivii 



her dam Wish by Touchstone. Those who make light of " selection '' in 
breeding for the tuif may here have proof of how wiong they are by tabu- 
lating this pedigree and comparing it with that of Tyrant, which they will 
find in Part I., p. 144, of this volume. That it was a great mistake on the 
part of Mr. A. M. Singer sending Mashery for sale at Paris in 1893 he will 
now see. 

Chittabob has, so far, got nothing anything like so good as himself ; but he 
is gradually working his way upwards, and may yet fulfil the high anticipa- 
tions formed of him. The Tartar, who took six races in 1897, was his best 
winner. 

Bendigo did fairly well, as his four winners took seven races worth ,£3,492 ; 
but as their sire is now on the Continent they need no further notice. 

Hagioscope, of the Blacklock family, has done as well as the limited 
patronage bestowed on him could warrant, and pity it is that breeders do not 
recognise how splendidly he is bred (by Speculum — Sophia by Macaroni). 
The good-looking Northallerton was his best winner in 1897, as he took no 
fewer than seven races worth .£1,701. His success is, however, not sur- 
prising, as he is out of Xunthorpe and Queen^s Birthday's dam, Matilda by 
Beauclerc, dam by Cathedral — Empress by King Tom. 

Ocean Wave, though very sparingly patronised, has, from his first entrance 
into stud life, been a decided success, which is no wonder, being a son of See 
Saiv (held by General Peel, a fine judge of breeding and racing, to be the best 
stallion of his day) and his dam by Stockicell. His two best winners in 1897 
were Crestfcdlen, who took four races, and Oceano, a winner of three. The 
dam of the latter is Virtus by Albert Victor — Pythia by Rosicrucian, her dam 
Chevil Grove by Marjiori {Prime Minister — Autocrat — Brocket) — Compton Lass 
by St. Albans, her dam Marpesia by Bay Middleton. Fiom this breeding it 
may very well be seen that Virtus was specially well fitted to mate with 
Ocean Wave, through having in her a sufficiency of the blood of Birdcatcher, 
Touchstone, Bay Middleton, and Melbourne. 

Chelsea, the stud companion of Ocean Wave, as the most successful of 
Cremorne's sons at the stud, ought to be largely patronised in oi-der that the 
blood of the Derby and Grand Prix winner of 1872 — in every way a beautiful 
horse — may not be lost to the British stud. 

Sensation, an American stallion by Leamington, holds a good place in the 
record, through being the sire of five successful two-year-olds and two three- 
year-olds, brought from the other side of the Atlantic by Mr, Lorillard, 
Mr. Keene, and Lord William Beresford. Mita, a brown filly, her dam 
Magnetic, the property of the latter nobleman, did best, as she won four 
races worth £1,419. 

Juggler hardly did so well as in 1896, but still not badly, as told by the 
success of seven of his progeny, which included the beautifully bred Rose- 
meryn, and Bewitchment, bred by Mr. Burdett Coutts, out of Stolen Kisses by 
Macheath — Lady Chatelaine by Silvio, her dam Lady Go Lightly by King Tom, 
a very fitting mate for Juggler, whose breeding will be found in the previous 
edition of the Horse-breeders' Handbook. 

Crowberry, though a beautifully bred descendant of Blacklock, has never 



Iviii INTRODUCTION. 



had anything like the patronage he is deserving of, his chief patron being his 
owner, Mr, Vyner. He was the sire of thirteen winners in 1897; but none 
of them took any of the gi-eat races of the year. 

Siceetheart, who is located in the south of Ireland, is noticed elsewhere. 

Veracity's progeny, six in number, won eighteen races, amounting to the 
exact sum of <£3,000 ; but, like Crowherry, none of them took any of the 
great races of 1897. 

The progeny of the following fifteen stallions won in 1897 £2,000 and 
upwards. They are given in the order of their winnings, and the pedigrees 
of those marked * will be found given in full in this volume.

Florant'me, who is in the Beenham House Stud, lias not yet been the sire 
of a classic winner, which, from his breeding, he ought to be; but it is just 
possible he may this year have that credit through the succe.ss of his son, 
Florio Rubattino. This colt had no difficulty in winning the New Stakes 
from Rhoda B , the very smart daughter of Hanover (one of the most suc- 
cessful sires in the United States), Lucknoic, Ayah, the Jenny Uon-lct cclt^ 
and Simylla; but at Doncaster Ayah turned the tables on him for the 
Champagne Stakes, and he ran unplaced to Dieudonne for the Middle Park 
Plate. On this running his chance of winning the " Blue Riband " a second 
time for Mr. McCalmont is not much ; but all will depend on what improve- 
ment he may have made during the interregnum. His dam is Wealth (the 
Lombard's dam) by Sterling — Cherry Duchess by 77ie Duke, her dam Morella, 
by Gemma di Vergy, so there is no doubt but Florio Rubattino is exceptionally 
well bred to race. 

Carlton, not being bred to get '* sprinters," was never sufficiently patro- 
nised to prove a great success at the stud, and consequently there are only 
three winners to his name — viz., Carlton Grange, False Step, and Le Dauphin, 
of whom the first-named greatly distinguished himself, and certainly takes 
the attribute of staying from his sire, while he was bred for both speed and 
stoutness on the side of his dam. Mystery l>y Muncaster — Violetta by Hermit, 
her dam Anonyma by Stocku-ell, a superbly bred mare, now in the Bruntwood 
Stud, the home of Kendal, to whom if mated she should breed a wonder. 

Kilworlin, winner of the St. Leger in 1887, the most strangely neglected 
sire in the United Kingdom, now that he has shown his ability to get a real 
" clinker," as no doubt Kilcock is, besides being as perfect in make and shape 



INTR OD UCTION. lix 



as if made to order, ought surely now to be widely patronised, for the racing 
world is all the poorer owing to his not having been sooner given a chance to 
get more like Capt. Greer's stunning good horse. Kilcock's dam is Bonnie 
Morn, foaled in 188G, got by Rosicrucian — Bonnie Katie by Kinrj of Trumps 
( Velocijjede), her dam Basquine by Orlando — Canezou by Melbourne, her dam 
Madam Pelerine by Velocipede. Putting a mare so bred to Kilwarlin, shows 
plainly enough that chance had but little to do in breeding Kilcock, but that 
it was wholly owing to the study of pedigree; for were the whole eighteen 
volumes of the " Stud Book " searched through, there could not be found for 
her a more fitting mate. This may be readily seen by any one who tabulates 
her pedigree and compares it with that of Kilwarlin, which will be found 
in Part I., p. 67, of this volume. The same blood runs thickly in the veins 
of both. Kilwarlin is the sire of several -winners, besides Kilcock, including 
Break of Day, Ogden, etc., the latter of whom, being out of Oriole by Bend 
Or, was foaled in America, his dam having been taken to the United States, 
where Oyden won the great Futurity Stakes of 12,000sovs. in 1896. 

Lowland Chief, recently destroyed owing to his having become a savage, 
though .splendidly bi-ed, having in him the blood of the two great Irish horses, 
Birdcatcher and Harkaway, was never much patronised, except by Lord 
Ellesmere, and has left nothing of any note behind him. 

Springfield, the grand old son of St. Albans and Viridis by Marsyas, the 
most distinguished of Orlando's progeny at the stud, no longer lives to per- 
petuate his name and fame, as he recently died, in his twenty-fifth year, from 
an attack of paralysis. In 1897 he had two winners of six races of £2,622 
— viz., Butter and Last of the Queens. 

Herald, considering the slight patronage extended to him, has done well 
with the five winners got by him, as they took eight races worth ,£2,240. Of 
this amount his daughter Blare took £1,366 in two races — the Stanley Stakes 
at Liverpool and the Hurstbourne Stakes at Stockbridge. She was bred by 
Sir William Throckmorton, a most successful breeder, and is out of Chantress 
by Avontes — Actress by Barbillon, her dam Music by Stockivell, bred by Lord 
Portsmouth in 1890. 

Salisbury, the fine son of Camballo, died in 1897, just as he was about to 
take a much more prominent place among the winning stallions of the day 
than it was his good fortune to do previously. It is nevertheless a good one, 
considering the limited patronage bestowed on him, as he had, in the year 
he died, eight winners of thirteen races worth £2,343. Emsworth and High 
Treasurer were his chief winners, and the dam of the latter, who so nearly 
carried ofi" the Lincolnshii'e Handicap, is out of Lowland Maid by Loidander, 
her dam by Martyrdom, granddam by Saccharometer. 

Necromancer, from his success at the stud in Ireland, would doubtless 
have been well patronised at Newmarket, but for being a roarer. Most of 
his progeny in Ireland " made a noise," and unfortunately that teri-ible 
malady has befallen his fine son, Longtown, who was his chief winner in 1897. 
His dam is the splendidly bred Bride of Ketherby by Galliard — her dam 
Hermione by Y. Melbourne — La Belle Relene by St. Albans — Teterrima by 
Voltigeur, etc., as in the pedigree of Persimmon. Such a misfortune hap- 



Ix JNTR OD UCTION. 



pening to this splendid son of Mr. Matthew Dawson's favourite mare must 
be sorely felt by the veteran trainer; but she is still young, and it is here 
suggested to him that she might breed as good a colt as Longtown if put to 
Necromancer's full brother, Juggler, who is sound in wind and limb and about 
the most promising young stallion of the day. 

Nunthorpe, with two winners of three races, worth £2,200, is another 
young stallion well worth the attention of breeders. These winners are a 
colt, Nunnykirk, and a filly, JVunsiich, the latter of much more than ordinary 
goodness, as she won two valuable prizes — the North Derby at Newcastle 
and the Gatwick Handicap at Gatwick. Her dam is La Morlaye (imported 
from Hungary in 1892) by Doncaster, her dam by Macaroni out of Datestone 
by Grosvenor {Touchstone — Stockport), her dam Palm Leaf by Ratan, grand- 
dam by Gabber out of Snowdrop by Heron. Datestone, as may be surmised 
from the breeding, was in the stud of the Marquis of Westminster, at Eaton, 
but, though so splendidly bred, did nothing much to distinguish herself at the 
stud ; but, curiously enough, on being put to Doncaster in Hungary, her produce 
was La Morlaye, the dam of yunsuch, now in the stud of His Royal Highness 
the Pi-ince of Wales, who purchased her from Lord Wm. Bei'esford. 

Discord, though fast getting into the sere and yellow state, continues in 
the winning list with three representatives, the most noted of which is 
Quarrel ; while the next to claim attention is Grand Flanneur, an Australian 
stallion, the sire of Merman, winner of the Cesarewitch. 

Laureate IL. had, among his six winners in 1897, a most distinguished 
runner in Northern Farmer, as he took the Crawford Plate at Newmarket, 
worth =£400, and the Ayrshire Handicap of £1,030. His dam is Smock Frock, 
bred by Lord Rosebery, and got by Town Moor — }[iss Sheppard by Dollar, 
her dam Mrs. Birch by Gamehoy — a very mixed pedigree, from which there is 
nothing leliable to be learned. 

Blue Green is not yet very numerously represented, but is still to the fore 
with five winners, the most distinguished of whom are Blue Water and Blue 
Smoke. The former, in the Duke of Westminster's Stud, has not done so well 
as her two-year-old running promised, as in five attempts she only won the 
Gratwicke Stakes of <£400 at Goodwood ; but the two-year-old Blue Smoke 
scored twice — at Warwick and Sandown Park, where she took the Walton 
Stakes of £770 from ten runners. Her dam is Ashdoim, who is in the stud 
of her owner, Capt. Orr-Ewing, and is one of the very best bred mares at the 
stud, being by Muncaster — Miss Maria by Scottish Chief- — Silver Ring by 
Blair Athol, her dam by Kingston — England's Beauty by Birdcatcher, bred by 
Lord Falmouth. With Blue Green she has done well, but might have done 
better if mated with Bend Or, as recent breeding shows you cannot have too 
much Birdcatcher and Touchstone. 

The above i-ecord embraces the doings at the stud of all the sires whose 
progeny won any of the great races brought to issue in 1897, with the 
exception of Castlereagh, one of the Blacklock family, now dead, and whose 
son, Clorane, bred in Ireland, won the Doveridge Handicap of £1,000 at 
Derby, on the straight mile, carrying 9st. 101b., from a field of eleven runners ; 
while in preceding years he won the great Lincolnshire Handicap and 



INTRODUCTION. Ixi 



the Royal Hunt Cup at Ascot. According to these i^erformances, 
Clorane is bound to be reckoned one of the horses of the century, and yet, 
strange to say, his pedigree cannot be traced back to his Arab or Barb 
ancestors, so that, although withdrawn from the turf to the stud, he is 
inadmissible to the sacred pages of the " Stud Book " ; while the same fate 
has befallen another grandly inbred Blackloch horse, Benvenuto, winner of the 
Grand Prize at Epsom in 1891, whose breeding really cannot be surpassed, 
save that, like Clorane's, it cannot be traced to the tap-roots, made so much 
of by Mr. Bruce Lowe, but which has been shown in the preceding pages to 
be all moonshine. That this opinion is held also by the breeder of St. 
Frusquin is in evidence by his breeding at the Southcourt Stud from close 
relations of Benvenuto, who, despite the flaw in his pedigree, had been 
admitted to the American " Stud Book," as, doubtless, would Clorane also, 
were any of the American millionaires to tempt Mr. Basset with a suiSciently 
big figure and take him across the Atlantic to the United States. It will 
be seen at page 11, where his full pedigree and portrait are given, that 
Benvenuto, whose destination is the United States, is quite as fine an 
"individual" as Clorane, and despite " h. b." having to be written to bis 
name, some of his progeny may yet return to England and take, as Iroquois 
did, a bigger prize at Epsom — the Derby. 

Then, Mr. J. C. Curtis, a gentleman well up in pedigree, is also sending to 
his stud farm in Virginia two other grand individuals, Savile and Oakwood, 
whose pedigrees and performances, with their portraits, will also be found in 
this volume. It is a pity that the former, a fine performer in South Africa, 
where he also won his spurs as the sire of several very distinguished and good 
winners, is permitted to leave England, because in all his races he showed 
great staying ability, as he was bound to do, being by Hampton out of so 
good a mare as Mr. Savile's favourite Lilian proved herself to be on the race- 
course. Nor, indeed, ought a horse that performed so well and has such a 
stunning good pedigi-ee as Oakwood be allowed to leave the country, as he is 
undoubtedly Sheens best son so far. 

Referring to the other new additions to the stud, besides Persimmon, 
advertised in this volume in alphabetical order, the excellence of Blairjinde's 
pedigree has been already dilated upon, and the next that claims notice is the 
successful Australian stallion. Chain Shot. This fine horse was brought from 
the Antipodes with the intention of sharing the favour and patronage of 
English breeders with Carbine, Carnage, and Trenton, the other Australian 
importations, the pedigrees and performances of the two first-named of whom 
will also be found given in this work in full, so breeders will have the oppor- 
tunity of noting every particular necessary to be knowfi about them. Like 
Carbine, Chain Shot is a son of Musket and Carnage is his grandson, so all 
three are descendants of Touchstone, a fact that speaks trumpet-tongued for 
the vitality of the blood of that great Eaton celebrity. 

Cherry Ripe, who is advertised for the first time in the Horse-breeders' 
Handbook, next claims a word or two. Bred at the famous Yardley Stud 
and full brother to Energy, Enthusiast, etc.. Lord Rossmore was fortunate in 
buying him, as he is already sire of Red Heart, Morello, Ballyalbany, and 



INTR OD UCTION. 



Drogheda, the winner of the Grand National, all bred from the few thoroughbred 
mares put to him in Ireland. Consequently there is a great future before 
this extremely grand young stallion in whom fine breeding (as may be seen 
at page 34), great power, and splendid quality are combined, doing great 
credit to the judgment of the young nobleman who purchased him from the 
late Duchess of Montrose ; but as much was to be expected from the grand- 
son of the Lord Eossmore who bred Rainhoio, Promise (dam of Freney, the 
best horse at the Curragh in his day), and numerous other good horses. In 
the breeding of Cherry Ripe the folly of the "figure system" is seen to the 
full, as his tap-root is the Farmer s mare by Gkillahy, of whom no mention 
is made by Mr. Bruce Lowe in his apportionment of " families." 

Flm'izel II., like his full brother, Fersimmon, is another new addition to 
this work, whose excellent performances will be read with interest by all 
breeders, and must induce those who have mares suitably bred to mate with 
him to lose no time in securing nominations to him. 

The pedigree and performances of Greenlaion (the best son of Kendal after 
Galtee More), at page 58, ^vill also be scanned with interest by studmasters, 
for although the "tap-roots" of both his sire and dam, Buda, are unknown, 
he ran none the worse for that, having in him three strains of Birdcatcher 
(two through the famous brothers, StocJcicell and Rataj^lan, bringing in two 
strains of Focahontas) and two of Thm'manby, whence his goodness, and these, 
combined with several other fine strains of blood, are bound to tell in favour 
of Greenlawn at the stud. 

The next new addition to be noticed is the excellent and true runner. 
Grey Ley, in the pj-emier stud of England, where he has, with excellent judg- 
ment, been retained by the Duke of Westminster ; and his Grace won't have 
much difficulty in finding fitting mates for him, so full is he of the most 
successful winning blood of the day- — five strains of Touc/tstone, three of 
Birdcatcher, three of Bay Jliddleton, and two each of Plenipotentiary and 
Priam, while in other respects his pedigree can hardly be surpassed. 

Although a couple of years at the stud, the pedigree and performances of 
May Duke have never been previously properly put before the studmasters 
of the United Kingdom, notwithstanding that it is on him, after BeTid Or, 
breeders will chiefly have to depend to perpetuate in a good channel the 
Doncaster line of Birdcatcher. And very well he can do it, as may bo seen 
by reference to his pedigree at page 80, there being many fine strains of blood 
in his dam Maibaum, coming to her from the famous Queen Mah, through 
Remembrance, Oblivion, and Forget-me- Not, the dam of Daniel O'Rourke, 
Vergiss-mein-Nicht, and several other winners. 

Another fresh addition to the stud is ,St. Simonmimi by St. Simon, and, 
as his name implies, out of Mimi by Barcaldine, breeding that very probably 
would have insured for him a successful racing career had he been fit to go 
into a training stable. This was, however, prevented through his having 
had inflammation in one of his joints, which prevented his being sent for 
sale, in 1895, to Doncaster, with the rest of Sir Tatton Sykes' yearlings, 
and he subsequently was purchased by Capt. W. H. Fife, and he is now 
the companion of llazlehatch and Queen's Counsel, at that gentleman's 



INTRODUCTION. Ixiii 



stud farm at Langton Hall, Northallerton. Comment on his bi^eeding is 
unnecessary. 

Mimic, whose doings on the racecourse will be found recounted on the 
succeeding page, is the companion of Florizel II. and Worcester at the Heath 
Stud Farm, close by the July course, where the stud of Lord Marcus Beresford 
is located. An in-bred Blacklock horse, — having eight strains of that celebrity, 
and no fewer than five strains of Birdcatcher, with four of Touchstone, two 
of Pocahontas, and one of Melbourne — Mimic could not help being a first-class 
race horse, and it was a pity his career was cut short by accident ; but all 
the better for breeders, as he has gone to the stud with a constitution wholly 
unimpaired by a long course of training. 

Petros, full brother to St. Serf, is another new addition to the Horse- 
breeders' Handbook that must claim the attention of studmasters, if only 
from his close relationship to that successful Welbeck stallion, independent of 
which he can claim to be one of the finest and most perfect shaped horses 
at the stud. His pedigree will be found at page 98. 

St. Frusquin, the great antagonist of Persimmon for the Derby of 1896, 
is sure to have his pedigree and performances sought for next to those of his 
victor, as he is by many held to be his equal, if not his supei-ior. They will 
be found at page 117, and cannot but be scanned with great interest. 
A son of the same sire as begat Persimmon — the famous St. Simon — St. 
Frusquin has in him, on the side of his dam, Isabel, several of the same strains 
of blood as are in Perdita II., the dam of Persimmon. In both pedigrees the 
names of Touchstone, Blacklock, Melbourne, Sir Hercules, Gladiator, and Bay 
Middleton are prominent, but in regard to other great horses their pedigrees 
are quite different. In that of Perdita II., the great horses to be found 
besides the above include Stockwell, Rataplan, Lanercost, Pantaloon, Glencoe 
and The Provost; while the great "individuals," besides those above named, in 
Isabel's pedigree are West Australian, Sheet Anchor, Siveetmeat, Waxy Pope, 
Veridam, Ithuriel, Slane, Royal Oak, and Catton, while her " tap-root " is the 
mare by Bay Bolton, dam by the Belgrade Turk. The difference in point of 
blood between Persimmon and St. Frusquin is thus very considerable, and 
from this short analysis of their pedigrees breeders will be enabled to make 
choice which of these celebrities are the most suitable for their mares. 
Already St. Frusquin is the sire of several foals, holding out unusual promise ; 
but unfortunately two of the best mares on the Southcourt Stud slij^ped tAvins 
to him. He will this year have twenty -five public mares, besides ten of Mr. 
Leopold de Rothschild's. 

Sir Visto, another new addition to the stud, claims special notice on 
account of his excellent performances and splendid pedigree, which will be 
found at page 132. He is Barcaldines best son, and out of Vista, the dam 
of Bonavista and Velasquez. His " tap-roots " are not given, to spai-e space 
to give his breeding more fully, and from which it will be seen that he is 
in-bred to a horse that was " never beaten and never paid forfeit," while he 
was no less successful at the stud — the noted Highflyer. Of this great sire's 
blood Sir Visto has in him no fewer than ten strains, four on the side of his 
sire and six through his dam Vista ; and of blood nearer to our day he has in 



Ixiv INTRODUCTION. 



him four strains of Touchstone^ three of Birdcatclier, five of Blacklock, two of 
Pocahontas, and one of Melbourne, the blood that nearly all the great winners 
for the last two decades have sprung from ; besides which he is a beautiful 
" individual " and a winner of the " dual crown." 

Tanzmelster, like his stud companion May Duke, never has had his 
I^edigree and performances properly put before breeders until now. Through 
his sire, Saraband, he is another representative of the Doncaster line and 
Birdcatcher's, while he has in him on the side of Mizpah, his dam, several 
strains of fine stout blood. 

Tarporley is an Eaton bred son of St. Simon, a good runner, and being 
out of Ruth by Scottish Chief, he has in him through Miss Ann, dam of the 
latter, the fine blood of Lacerta (a mare almost as in-bred to the Godolphin as 
Harkaway) and Bay Middleton, blood that nicks with the same in St. Simon 
and which no doubt with the blood of Velocipede and Sir Hercules on both 
sides of the house, contributed to Tarporley's goodness, and being a very fine 
" individual" Mr. John Mclntyre did good business when he secured him for 
the Theakston Hall stud. 

Wliittier, another new addition to the stud, is also located at Theakston 
Hall. This fine young sire — whom Mr. James Russel of SomervUle Lodge, 
Newmarket, has the good fortune to own — is in-bred to Touchstone, Blacklock, 
and Melbourne, having in him five strains of Touchstone, one of Blacklock, and 
two of Melbourne, with three of Pantaloon and three of Tramp, while there is 
in him one each of Stockivell and Pocahontas— a.n admirable pedigree, that 
ought to insure for him very wide patronage. 

Victor Wild by Albert Victor-— a. further new addition to tbe stud — is a 
direct descendant of Touchstone through one of his most distinguished sons, 
Orlando, who was the sire of Marsyas, who begat Albert Victor from his union 
with The Princess of Wales by Stockivell, and whose dam was 17ie Bloomer by 
Melbourne ; then Victor Wild's dam is descended from Gladiator through 
Sweetmeat, Macaroni, and Remorse (dam Repentance by Annandale), from 
whose union with Rio by Plum Pudding, her dam Rio by Melbourne, came 
Wild Huntress, the dam of Victor Wild. Being thus in-bred to Touchstone, 
Melbourne, and Sweetmeat, with two strains of Birdcatcher, there is in Victm- 
Wild such a fine accumulation of the running blood of the day that he is 
bound to attain a most successful stud career. 

Winkfield (whose full pedigree has not been previously given), being full 
brother to Morion, is descended from Melbourne through West Australian (dam 
Mowerina by Touchstone), Solon (dam by Birdcatcher), and Barcaldine (dam 
Ballyroe by Belladrum), so he is on his sire's side in-bred to Birdcatcher and' 
Touchstone. On the side of his dam, Chaplet, however, there comes .in 
different but equally successful running blood, as she is descended on her 
sire's side from T'ramp through Lottery, Sheet Anchor, Weatherbit, and Beads- 
"man while her dam is the famous Madame Eglentine by Cotd, the best stud 
representative of Bay Middleton from his union with the famous Crucifiv, 
who brings into Wiyikfield a second strain of the no less celebrated Priam, the 
other coming into his pedigree through another Oaks winner, Miss Letty, the 
dam of Weatherbit. Being thus bred, it is not surprising that Winkfield should 



INTRODUCTION. Ixv 



have sired almost in liis first season in Ireland so good a horse as WinkfielcVs 
Pride, besides several other winners. 

Worcester, the last, and far from the least worthy, new addition to the 
stud, is another descendant of Bb'dcatcher, through The Baron, Stockwell, 
Doncaster, Jlimcaster, and Saraband, and he is indeed a fine " individual," 
showing in a very marked manner his descent from Stockvell, as may be seen 
in his portrait, and if Mr. Bruce Lowe wrote a great deal of nonsense in his 
book, he was at least quite right in suggesting the value of horse-portraiture 
in connection with horse-breeding ; and now that photography has been 
brought to such a state of perfection, studmasters, and particularly the 
owners of stallions, will find it gi-eatly to their interest to have their horses 
portrayed by clever artists like Mr. Clarence Hailey and Mr. Rouch, whose 
portraits add such value to this work. Worcester is a most valuable addition 
to the stud, as, like Amphion, he is descended from the same Royal mare 
whence came Eclipse, and is in-bred to Birdcatc/ier and Bay Middleton (Lord 
George Bentinck's favourite stallion), while he has in him besides plenty of 
the blood of Touchstone and Blacklock, fi-om which it will be seen that he is 
full of the most successful running blood of the day. 

Having thus curtly brought to the notice of studmasters and breeders 
generally the value to the British stud of the new claimants for theii* favours, 
whose pedigrees and performances will be found in this volume, a few words 
concerning the remaining advertised sires not already noticed are called foi-, 
and will doubtless be appreciated by their owners, while they cannot fail to 
interest all concerned in bi-eeding the thoroughbred horse. 

Avingtoii by Melton, ha\T[ng been purchased by Lord Hastings, has been 
removed from the Compton Stud, Dorset, to Melton Constable, where his fee 
has been reduced to 24gs. ; and according to the " Stud Book " return he was 
in 1897 the sire of twelve foals — three colts and nine fillies, now yearlings. 

Best Man, another most distinguished son of Melton, still remains at 
Howbury Hall, Bedford, where he has not been patronised to the extent of 
his deserts, as the " Stud Book " retui-n only credits him Avith four colts and 
five fillies, the dam of one of the latter being the Duke of Westminster's 
Ornament by Bendj Or. 

Brag, the son of Strican and grandson of Blair Athol, notwithstanding his 
splendid breeding and being a really grand individual, remains still foolishly 
unpatronised to any extent by the general breeder; but Mr. Leopold de 
Rothschild still sticks, and with just reason, to the sire of Gidistan, who is 
returned as having got, in 1897, six colts and four fillies, one of each sex, a colt 
•lit of Peterkina by Peter, and a filly out of Nosegay by Silver, being dead. 

Bumptious, the flying son of Brag and the greatest sprinter of his day, has 
this year (1898) shown that he can get stock as speedy as himself — vide the 
success of Brightly at Lincoln. In the " Stud Book " return for 1897 there 
are only two fillies crecUted to him ; but in these sprinting days he is bound 
to have a pretty full list this year. 

Cabin Boy, the winner of twenty-nine races out of the thirty-eight he con- 
tested, and the most in-bred horse of our time, and to which he doubtless 
owed his many victories, still continues at the Compton Vernety Stud, Eaneton,

Warwickshire, where he has hardly been patronised to the extent he ought to 
have been, as he has to his credit, for 1897, only ten foals — three colts and 
seven fillies, all living and holding out great future promise. 

Carbine, one of whose first batch of foals, in 1897, the colt out of Santa 
Felice by St. Simon — Happy Hampton by Hamilton, made, at the Newmarket 
December sales, the unprecedented price for a foal of l,050gs., was, of couree, 
largely patronised, as there were born to him thirteen colts and thirteen 
fillies, now yearlings, many of whom hold out extraordinary future promise, 
and had not the colts of Sad, Sanderling, and Wheel of Fortune died in 
foaling, while Mowerina had dead twins, so grand a lot of foals would never 
previously have been born to one sire at the Welbeck Stud. 

Carnage, whose portrait is given with this volume, makes one of the 
stallions located at the Cobb am Stud, where he has been fairly well patro- 
nised, as he is credited, in 1897, with twelve foals — four colts and eight fillies, 
one of the latter being a daughter of The Sabine, who, to Cheii'y Ripe, bred 
Red Heart, and is also the dam of Sabine Queen by The Hachler. 

Chiklwick is, of course, one of the sires attached to the leviathan establish- 
ment of Sir J. Blundell Maple, under the charge of Mr. Tom Castle, at 
Child wick Hall, St. Albans. Always a liorse thought a great deal of by every 
one in the racing and breeding world, it is not surprising that, in 1897, he 
was returned as the sire of twenty-one foals, no fewer than five of whom 
unfortunately died in foaling, notwithstanding the careful supervision of 
Mr. Castle, while Sir John Duke's Morella by Ethelred, though in her 
fifteenth year, had dead twins. 

Crafton, sire of the speedy Grig and several other winners, has hardly 
been patronised to the extent such a splendidly bred and grand individual 
ought to have been. Sixteen foals were, however, born to him in 1897, 
several of them from very good mares, so that in a year or two he is sure to 
come to the front among the winning stallions of the time. 

Dog Rose has as many winners to his name this year as could be expected 
from the limited patronage bestowed upon this beautiful son of See Saw, who 
is sure, in time, to work his way upwards at the stud. He is credited with 
being the sire of seven foals in 1897 — five colts and two fillies. 

Endurance is one of the numerous stallions located at the Yardley Stud, 
and is a horse of immense power as well as quality, as may be seen by his 
portrait at p. 47, while his breeding cannot be excelled. He is a descendant 
of Birdcatcher, through Oxford, and Sterling his sire, being thus only two 
removes fiom the great Irish horse, while his dam, Siluria, is a daughter 
of Lord Clifden (son of Xetvminster and the Slave by Melbourne) by his union 
with Mineral, by Rataplan, out of Manganese by Birdcatcher. Thus En- 
durance is in-bred to Birdcatcher, Touchstone, and Melbourne, while he has 
a sufiiciency of Blacklock blood in him through Velocipede and Volley to fill 
his pedigree with all the best winning blood of the day. Like Wenlock, 
The Miner, Mandrake, Thormanby, Kisba', and several other noted horses. 
Endurance descends from Expectation by Herod, her dam by Skim whose 
" tap-root " is by Place's White Turk, dam ^inknovn. With Bicorniger, he 
has already won his spurs at the stud, and thougli the latter failed at 



INTRODUCTION. Ixvii 



Lincoln to run up to the form he showed on the racecourse in 1897, he 
is so closely in-bred that he may be expected to do much better before the 
close of 1898. 

The pedigrees and performances of McMahon and Pioneer (two other fine 
stallions attached to the Yai'dley stud) will also be found in this volume, 
and are well worth the attention of breeders. McMahon is like Macheath, 
another descendant of Gladiator (a great horse who ran second to Bay 
Middleton for the Derby in 1836), through Sweetmeat, Macaroni, and 
Macgregor, born from the union of the latter with Lady of Un^ard by Lord 
Lyon, her dam Mayonnaise by Teddington out of Picnic by Glaiccus, thus 
bringing into his pedigree another strain of Partisan, a son of Walt07i out of 
the famous Parasol by PotSos. This splendidly bred horse has been almost 
entirely neglected by breeders, but happily in 1897 he was the sire of eleven 
foals — seven colts and four fillies — through whom the fine blood that is in 
McMahon may yet be transmitted \vith eclat to posterity. 

Pio7ieer is by Galopin, while his dam is Moorlien by Hermit, who also pro- 
duced Gallinule to Isonomy, whence there is no occasion to further recount 
his pedigree here; but it will be found in full at page 100, and it may be 
stated that for bone, size, and power he is not excelled by any of Galopin's 
sons at the stud. So far Pioneer has not had much chance of showing his 
worth as a sire, but it will be different in a year or two, as in 1896 there 
were twenty foals born to him (now two-year-olds), while in the returns for 
1897 he is credited with being the sire of twenty-three foals (now yearlings) 
— ten colts and thirteen fillies, of whom two of each sex died in foaling. 

The strength of the Yardley Stud is not, however, told by the three above- 
named stallions, as there are besides in that vast establishment ten other 
sires — namely. Cherry Stone (full brother to Energy) by Sterling — Gfterry 
Duchess by Tlie Duke; Ferndale by Sterling — Vessel by BUnhhoolie; Privilege 
(full brother to Isonoviy) hy Sterling — Isola Bella hy Stockwell; Sir Frederic 
by Scottish Chief — Secliosion (dam of Hermit) by Tadmor ; Stanch by Peter — 
Black Star by Forerunner ; Tribe by Sterling — Brunette by Y. Melbourne ; 
Trillion by Plebeian — -Union by Sterling; Vibrate by HamjJton — Vibration by 
The Duke; and Wire by The Duke — Double First by Oxford, so breeders 
requiring first-class stallions have plenty to choose from in the Yardley Stud. 
Nor should it be forgotten that at Y^ardley was bred the great Isonomy, 
whose sons and daughters have already given to the turf such good runners 
as Cyllene, Dieudonne, Wildfowler, Sirenia, Bittern, Heir Male, Nun Nicer, 
Queen of the Rivers, Dabchick, WinkfieldJs Dower, Astracan, Little Blanche, 
Ruler by Isosceles, and the filly by the latter handsome sire, out of Spring- 
thorn by Morgan, all of whom greatly distinguished themselves in 1897, 
so much so that their performances recall to mind the great deeds done 
by their grandsire. Sterling, both on the racecourse and at the stud, and 
whose pedigree is given on the next page. 

The "tap-roots" of Sterling show that he comes from the same Royal 
mare from whom descended Eclipse, while, like Pocahontas, he has in him 
nine strains of the Old Morocco mare, three of the Tregomvell Natural Barb 
mare, while most of the remainder of the Arab or Barb blood in him was 



Ixviii

INTRODUCTION. Ixix 



taken from Royal mares. Then with regard to the winning blood of the 
day, Sterling had plenty of it in him fi-om Birdcatcher, ToucJistone, and 
Melbourne, with a sufficiency of Blachlock taken from Hornsea, who is also a 
factor in the pedigree of St. Simon. 

Gone Coon is another sjilendidly bred son of Galojnn, his dam being Hors 
de Combat by IlamjHon out of Repulse by Stockwell, her dam Sortie by 
Melbourne — Escalade by Touchstone, thus being full of the winning blood 
of the day, which is what should be followed by every breeder. It is con- 
sequently almost past belief that in the " Stud Book " i-eturn for 1897 Gone 
Coon is credited with being the sire of only five foals — three colts and two 
fillies. Breeders can see for themselves at page 56 that in Gone Coon there 
is at least a splendid combination of the blood of Blachlock and Touchstone, if 
not the best to be found in the " Stud Book," as it brings to his pedigree two 
strains of Birdcatcher, through the famous brothers Stockwell and Rata2jlan, 
thereby giving him two strains of Pocahontas, while he has also in him two 
strains of Melbourne. And, further, breeders will see that the services of 
Gone Coon, a very fine " individual," can be had at the comparatively 
moderate fee of 50gs., and that mares sent to him wdll have the care of jNIr. 
W. Goode, a stud groom of vast experience, while they can range through 
some of the very richest pasturage to be found in Yorkshire, that surrounds 
the old Tickhill Castle. 

Isinglass, an addition to the stud in 1896, being in-bred in the orthodox 
fashion to Birdcatcher and Touchstone, has in him the finest combination of 
the blood of nearly all the great horses of the century, and which is hardly to 
be found in any stallion now at the stud. Hence his almost unparalleled 
success on the racecourse which enabled him to win for his owner, in eleven 
races, the unprecedented sum of £57,135, as told at page 63, where will 
be found the descriptive particulai-s of this great horse. In the *' Stud 
Book" return for 1897, Isinglass is credited with being the sire of twenty- 
two foals (now yearlings) — seven colts and twelve fillies living, while the 
produce of Ionia by Muncaster, La Vlerge by Hampton, and Leibershede 
(a French or German mare) died in foaling. 

Ladas, another addition to the stud in 1896, is a descendant of Touclislone, 
through Xewminster, Lord Clifden, and Hampton ; while his dam, Illuminata, 
descends from Lottery through Sheet Anchor, Weatherbit, Beadsman, and 
Rosicrucian, from the union of whom with Paraffin by Blair Athol, her dam 
Paradigm by Paragone (son of Touchstone), comes the dam of Ladas. This 
epitome of the breeding of the Derby winner of 1894 shows that he is 
in-bred to Touchstone, Birdcatcher and Melbourne, while he has in him, through 
Queen Mary and Delhi, three strains of the great Plenijyotentiary, and two 
of Gladiator through the former, making a pedigree second only to Isinglass 
in the excellence of its factors. Ladas in 1897 is credited with being the 
sire of fifteen living foals (now yearlings) — eleven colts and four fillies ; 
while a colt out of Polka by Galopin is dead ; and both CijiolUna by Macaroni 
and Sister Lucy by St. Gatien, had dead twins, 

Macheath, a very distinguished performer on the turf, should claim the 
attention of breeders from his being the only living son of Macaroni, a 



Ixx INTRODUCTION. 



descendant of Highflyer, through Sir Peter, Walton, Partisan, Gladiator, and 
Sioeetmeat, from whose union with Jocose by Pantaloon came 3Iacaroni. 
The sire of Macheath, who on the side of his dam, Heather Bell, can claim 
descent from Birdcatcher through The Baron and Stockwell, from whose 
union with Tightfit by Teddington, his dam by Gladiator out of a daughter of 
Cadland came the dam of Macheath, who is thus in-bred to Partisan, a son 
of Walton and the famous Parasol by PotSos. Macheath is credited in 1897 
with being the sire of thirteen foals (now yearlings) — six colts and seven 
fillies, one of the latter, the daughter of Pope Joan by Silvester, being dead. 

Morglay, the handsome black son of Sir Berys, is another descendant of 
Highflyer, through Gladiatm; Sweetmeat, Parmesan, and Favonius, from the 
union of the latter of whom with Lady Langden came the winner of the 
Derby 1879, the same year that Wheel of Fortune won the Oaks and 
Rayon d'Or the St, Leger. Morglay s dam, Pink, is a descendant of 
Birdcatcher through The Baron, Stockwell, Blair Athol, and Struan (sire 
of Brag), from whose union with a daughter of "The Beautiful Ely" 
(son of Kingston and The Bloomer by 2Ielhourne), her dam Xemesis by 
Xeivyninster and Varsoviana by Ion, came Pink. The elaboration of this 
breeding will be found in Morglay s pedigree, page 84, and hardly any finer 
can be found in the " Stud Book"; and yet he is returned for 1897 as the 
sire of only five foals (now yearlings) — three colts and two fillies, a very 
great oversight on the part of breeders. 

M(y)non (full brother to Winkjield), unquestionably one of the grandest 
horses at the stud, is a descendant of Melbourne, through West Australian, 
Solon, and Barcaldine, while his dam Chajylet descends from Tramp through 
Lottery, Sheet Anchor, Weatherhit, and Beadsman, from the union of the latter 
of whom with Madame Eglentine by Cowl comes Chapilet, also the dam of 
Winkfleld, who, though far less distinguished on the turf than Morion, has 
taken precedence of liim at the stud through being the sire of Winkfleld's 
Pride. This, however, is not likely to be for long, as Morion early showed 
his ability to get good winners, through being in his first year the sire of 
Burgonet and Helm ; while in 1896 he was the sire of five winners, including 
the Duke of Westminster's Helm out of Qnetta (Grey Leg's dam), who won 
the Coronation Stakes of 3,650sovs. at Ascot, beating Thais and six others, 
besides the Yorkshire Oaks of 550sovs. at York ; while in 1897 he had six 
winners, including Celada, winner of the Abbey Stakes of 484sovs. at 
Sandown Park. Morion is i^eturned in 1897 as the sire of twenty -six foals 
(now yearlings) — nine colts and seventeen fillies, three of the latter of whom 
died in foaling. 

Orme, the sensational horse of 1892, owing to the attempt made to poison 
him, is a son of the great Ormonde, a descendant of Birdcatcher, through 
The Baron, Stochoell, Doncaster, and Bend Or, while on his dam's side he 
descends from Blacklock through Voltaire, Voltlgeur, Vedette, and Galopiv, 
from whose union with .S'^. Angela by King Tom, {Harkatoay — Pocahontas), 
her dam Adeline by Ion — Little Fairy by Hoimsea, comes Angelica, the dam 
of Orme and also of Blue Green by Coerideus. This breeding, panned out into 
pedigree form (see page 92), shows Orme to have a large quantity of the 



INTRODUCTION. Ixxi 



winning blood of the day in nearly all his sixteen qnarterings, Birdcatcher 
being in three of them, Touchstone in two, Blacklock in eight, Pocahontas in 
two, and Harkaway in one ; while the later classic winners in Orme's pedigree 
include Oi-monde, Bend Or, Doncaster, Stockivell, The Baron, Tlim'manhy, 
Macaroni, Galopin, Vedette, Voltigeur, Voltaire, The Flying Dutchman, and 
Bay Middleton, owing to which he was nearly as great a performer on the 
turf as his sii'e, and might even have exceeded him in his doings on the race- 
course but for the dastar-dly attempt to poison him, which prevented his 
running for any of the classic races. Orme, in the " Stud Book " return for 
1897, is credited with being the sire of twenty-five foals (now yearlings) — ten 
colts and fifteen fillies, of whom one of the former and two fillies died in 
foaling. Towards the close of the covering season of 1897 Orme became 
excited almost to madness, and had to be withdrawn from service ; but this 
season no such symptoms have appeared, and he is in fine health and 
condition, performing his stud duties without the least irritability. 

Prince Hampton, the handsome young stallion attached to the gi'eat Child- 
wick Stud, is a son of Royal Hamjiton, and through his dam. Pibroch by Craig 
Millar, has in him a great deal of the corresponding blood in Royal Hampton, 
principally that of Melbourne, Touchstone, Birdcatcher, Bay Middleton, and 
Venison, and hence his goodness on the racecourse. He was returned in 1897 
as the sire of eighteen foals (now yearlings) — eight colts and ten filUes, all 
living, and those belonging to the Childwick Stud holding out gi-eat future 
promise. 

Priso7ier is another descendant of Birdcatcher, through Oxford, Sterling, 
and Isonomy, and is equally choicely bred on the side of his dam. Lonely, a 
daughter of Hermit — Anonyma by Stockwell, her dam Miss Sarah by Don 
John. There is here on both sides a quantity of corresponding blood, as may 
be seen in Prisoner's full pedigree at page 104, and from his fair racing 
abiHty, and being a true-shaped, good-looking son of Isonomy, he is bound to 
be a successful sire. He is credited with being the sire, in 1897, of five foals 
living, two colts and three fillies, while Tripaway by Galliard had dead twins. 
Raeburn, a favourite stallion in the great Welbeck Abbey Stud, is a 
descendant of Blacklock through Voltigeur, Vedette, Galopin, and St. Simon, 
and he owes his being to the union of the latter with Motverina, a mare 
foaled in Denmark, by Scottish Chief — Stockings by Stockivell, her dam Go 
Ahead by Melbourne — Motverina by Touchstone. Here we have, as it were, in 
a nutshell, the blood prominent in the breeding of nearly all the great winners 
for the past two or three decades — that of Birdcatcher, Toxtchstone, Harkaway, 
Blacklock, Melbourne, and Pocahontas, a fact to which, no doubt, Raeburn 
owed his excellence on the racecourse. In the " Stud Book" return for 1897, 
Raeburn is credited with being the sire of twenty foals (now yeai-lings), seven 
colts and twelve fillies, one of the former and three fillies having died in 
foaling ; while Cissy by Strathconan had dead twins, and Lady Cecil by Ossian 
had also twin fillies, one of which is living and is reckoned with the others. 

Ravensbury, the great contemporary and rival of Isinglass, and like him 
a son of Isonomy, has in Penitent a dam bred in maily points alike to 
Deadlock, the dam of Isinglass. Both these mares are descendants of Totoch- 



Ixxii INTRODUCTION. 



stone, the first named through Nevmi'inster and Hermit, and Deadlock throtigh 
yexmninMer, Lord CUfden, and Wenlock. Thus Stochwell is a factor in th(^ 
bi'eeding of Penitent, while his full brother liataplan fills a like position in 
the pedigree of Deadlock, and in both their pedigrees Bay Jliddleion is a 
prominent factor while there is also more Touclistone blood — two strains 
in Penitent and one in Deadlock. Thus Pavensburi/ and Isi)iglass are 
bred in many points alike; but in their covering fees there is a rather 
wide difference, as it will be seen, in their respective advertisements, that 
the services of Ravensbury can be had for lOOgs. while Isinglass s fee is 
300gs. Ravensbury is returned in 1897 as the sire of twenty-one foals 
(now yearlings) — eleven colts and ten fillies, one of the former, the produce 
of La Malibran by Cliaribert, having died in foaling. 

Sainfoin, the superbly bred son of Sjoringfield and Sanda by Wenlock, 
now that his sire has gone to the " happy hunting grounds," is bound to 
be given much more consideration on the part of breedeis than has hitherto 
been accorded to him. A Derby winner of perfect shape and full of quality, 
it is extraordinary that he should have been so overlooked, in-bred as he is 
to Birdcatcher, of whom he has in him four strains — three of which come 
to him through the famous brothers Stockvell and Rataplan, thus bringing 
three strains of Pocahontas into his pedigree, in which Touchstone is repre- 
sented on either side bjT his two best sons, Xeiominster and Orlando, and 
Blacklock and Melbourne by Volley, full sister to Voltigeur. Being so bred 
it is strange to find in the " Studbook " returns for 1897 that Sainfoin is 
credited with being the sire of only seven foals (now yearlings) — four colts 
and three fillies. Being now attached to the Sefton Stud at Newmarket 
it is to be hoped that a chance of perpetuating his fine blood will be 
given him. 

St. Florian, the stud companion of Blairfinde, at the Knockany Stud, 
CO. Limerick, is the only representative of St. Simon in Ireland ; and of all 
the fine sons of the great Welbeck Abbey sire at the stud he is perhaps 
the best looking. He was born from the union of St. Sivion with Palm- 
flower by The Palmer (full brother to Roslcrnciau), her dam Jenny Driver 
by Buccaneer — Fairy, by Wardlock— Leila, by Jlelbourne — Meanee, by Touch- 
stone, etc., through whom St. Florian has in him many strains of the best 
winning blood to be found in the " Stud Book." He is returned as the 
.sire of sixteen foals (now yearlings) — se\en colts and nine fillies, all living 
and holding out great future pi'omise. 

Selhy, another son of Beauclerc who is attached to the Blink Bonny stud, 
is, like Tyrant, sure to make his way to the front, from the excellence of his 
breeding. He is a descendant of Tramj) through Lottery, Sheet Anchor, 
Weatherbit, Beadsman, Rosicrucian, and Beauclerc, from whose union with 
The Pearl by Neiominster, her dam Caller Ou by Stockioell — Haricot by 
Lanercost — Queen Mary by Gladiator, has come Selby, This breeding, and 
the success he has already achieved at the stud has caused Selby s services to 
be sought after by several northern breeders, as he is i-eturned as the sire 
of fifteen foals (now yearlings) as may be seen at page 128, where his pedigree 
is set forth in full. 



INTRODUCTION. Ixxiii 



Sir Hugo claims the notice of breeders as the best son of Wisdom at the 
stud, as he comes from the union of that extraordinary in-bred and successful 
sire with Manoeuvre by Lord CUfden — Quick March by Rataplan, her dam 
Qui Vive by Voltigeur — Mrs. Ridgioay (dam of Vedette) by Birdcafcher, her 
dam J^'an Darrell by Inheritor — Nell by Blacklock, and his pedigree, given in 
extenso at page 130, is not excelled by even that of Isinglass. Sir Hugo's 
pedigi'ee is indeed a study for breeders ; but that many of them are aware 
of his great value as a sire there is proof in the fact that he was in 1897 
returned as the sire of twenty-four foals (now yearlings) — fourteen colts and 
ten fillies — all living and holding out great future promise. 

Suspender, the stud companion of Isinglass at Cheveley Park, Newmarket, 
is another descendant of Birdcatcher through The Baron, Stockioell, Doncaster, 
and Muncaster, the latter of whom on being mated with Garterless by Knight 
of the Garter, her dam Saratoga by Adventurer — Sumvierside by Lexington, 
her dam sister to Pryor by Glencoe, the produce is Suspender, who proved 
himself every inch a racehorse by winning the Royal Hunt Cup at Ascot in 
1891, beating a field of 25 horses. The principal blood in him is that of 
Emilius, Birdcatcher, and Touchstone, three strains each, and Pantaloon^ 
Melbourne, and Glencoe, two strains each, with one of Lexington, so he is 
choicely bred for both speed and stoutness. He is leturned as the sire in 
1897 of eleven foals (now yearlings) — nine colts and two fillies — one of the 
former of whom is dead, the produce of Go-Lighthj by Galojnn. 

Torpedo, a most successful stallion in Ireland, is a descendant of Pottos 
(for whom see Part II., p. 57) through Waxy, Whalebone, Sir Hercules, and 
Gunboat (only four removes from the greatest runner of all time), from the 
union of whom with Misadventure by King Tom, her dam Venus by Orlando 
— Volley by Voltigeur, her dam Martha Lynn by Mulatto — Leda by Filho-da- 
Puta, came Torpedo, whose bree ling will be found elaborated in tabular form 
at page 142, showing him to be, indeed, almost the most splendidly bred 
stallion at the stud. Notwithstanding this, the return for 1897 shows him 
to be the sire of only seven foals (now yearlings), two colts and five fillies. A 
lost stallion indeed ! 

Windgall, another of the Blacklock family, of whose blood he has in him 
no fewer than nine strains, with two strains each of Birdcatcher, Touchstone, 
and Bay Middleton. If mares suitably bred can be found for him at the 
Curragh, where he is the stud companion of Gallimde, he is verj' likely to be 
a success, as he is a hoi-se of great scope and power ; while he could, un- 
doubtedly, make good use of his legs, as may be seen by reading his 
performances at page 149. He is credited, in 1897, with being the sire of 
twelve foals (now yearlings), eight colts and four fillies, one of the former of 
whom died in foaling. 

Yard Arm, one of the most powerful thoroughbred horses ever foaled, 
is the companion of Amphion and Crafton at the Compton stud, Gillingham, 
Dorset, having been purchased with the object of putting him to hunting 
mares. His breeding, however, shows him to be worthy of being mated with 
some of the grandes dames of the stud, as he is an in-bred Touxhstone horse, 
having in him six strains of the great Eaton celebrity, two through Xev:- 



Ixxi V INTR OD UCTION. 



minster and one each through WiTidhound, Rifleman, Asteroid, and Mountain 
De&i' ; while in his pedigree there will also be found two strains of Birdcatcher 
(one through Stockioell), two of Blacklock and two of Glencoe, with one each of 
Thormanhjj, Pantaloon, and Partisan, names to be found in many of the 
winning pedigrees of the day. A horse so bred should not be permitted 
to waste his sweetness entirely on half-bred mares. 

Having thus commented on the doings and capabilities of all the sii'es 
advertised in this volume to cover during this and ensuing season, and shown, 
by giving the number of foals born to each during 1897, in what degree of 
regard they are held in by studmasters, a table is here added to show the 
amount won by each of the eighteen principal stallions now at the stud 
during the past four years.

The whole of these eighteen sires, with the exception of Desjjair, are 
descended from Eclipse, and the latter comes from Herod, while Matchem is 
unrepresented ; and an examination of the pedigrees of all the principal 
winners in 1897 shows the blood of Eclipse to be predominant almost in the 
same degree. In 1897, as in several preceding years, the principal winners 
chiefly sprang on the male side from a close amalgation of the blood of 
Birdcatcher, Touchstone, Ilarkaivay, Melbourne, and Blacklock, while by far 
the most prominent factor on the female side has been Pocahontas, from 
whose union with The Baron came Stockirell and Rataplan, and fi'om her 
union with Harkaway, King Tom ; and it is a curious but undeniable fact 
that where their names appear two or three times in a pedigree, there will be 
found a horse of great capabilities and superior form ; in proof of which it is 
only necessary to point to the breeding of Persimmon, Flainzel II., Sir Hugo, 
Sainfoin, Oakvjood, Morglay, and St. Simonmimi, in each of whom there are 
three strains of Pocahontas ; while her name is to be found twice in the 
pedigrees of Blairfinde, Ayrshire, Best Man, Blue Ch'een, Catmage, Cra/ton, Gone 
Coon, Isinglass, Mimic, Orme, Ravensbury, St. Serf, and Savile. The breeding of 
Pocahontas, and her doings at the stud, will be found in Part II. at page Ivii ; 
and her pedigree, traced back to her Arab or Barb origin, is given on the 
opposite page in a manner whereby can be seen at a glance the names of all 
the lioises from whom she is descended, without the intervention of their

Ixxvi INTRODUCTION. 



(lams' names ; and the same rule has been followed out with regard to the mares 
whose names are all given without the intervention of the names of their sires. 
It will be seen in this table the first dam of Pocaliontas is the dam of the 
Two True Blues by the Byerhj Turk, whose dam is, in an earlier page, shown 
to be the Burton Barb mare, of whom there are five more strains in 
Pocahontas, but the principal Arab or Barb blood in her comes from The Old 
Morocco mare (for whom it might well be claimed that she is the Eve of the 
whole race of thoroughbred horses) — no fewer than nine strains ; notwith- 
standing which she is not even alluded to by Mr. Bruce Lowe ; a strange 
omission in a work purporting to show the value of the female in breeding 
the thoroughbred horse. But as few can be got to believe that the know- 
ledge of what these remote ancestors were is in any way useful to the breeders 
of the present day, there is no occasion to refer further to the " tap-roots " in 
Pocahontas's pedigi-ee. In the nearer phases of her breeding it can, however, 
be seen that many fine and celebrated individuals had a share in it, notably 
Glencoe, one of the principal fathers of the American stud (see his pedigi-ee in 
Part II., page 7), Sultan (a better horse than Teresias or Antonio, who won 
the Derby and St. Leger in his year). Tramp (winner of many races and the 
stoutest runner of his day), the highly bi-ed Mideij (by Ori-llle), sire of her dam 
Marpessa, while her near female relations besides included Trampoline, 
Bacchante, Clare, Web, Harpalice, and the famous Eleanor, the first mare to 
\vin the Derby, and who also won the Oaks in the first year of this century. 
Being so bred, it is no wonder that Pocahontas is a prominent figure in all the 
best pedigrees of the day ; and notably in that of Galtee More, winner of the 
"triple crown" of 1897, besides four other races, worth in the aggregate 
£22,637. A great triumph for Irish breeding and his breeder, Mr. John 
Gubbins, of Bruree House, Bruree, Co. Limerick, who now heads the list of 
the principal winners on the turf in the United Kingdom for 1897, as may be 
seen in the annexed return : —

pleasure, showing, as it does, that the largest winner in 1897, after Mr. John 
Gubbins and Mr. Leopold de Rothschild, was His Eoyal Highness the Prince 
of Wales, who, both as a breeder and owner of running horses, has obtained 
marvellous success, considering how recently the stud at Sandringham has 
been formed and the few years the Royal colours have been carried on a 
racecourse. Galtee More won for Mr. Gubbins neaily the whole of the amount 
with which he is credited ; and Mr. Leopold de Rothschild, who had no St. 
Frusquin to do battle for him, won most of the large amount with which he 
is credited with two-year-olds, prominent among whom were the progeny of 
his own sire, Lactantkis, and Aijah, the beautiful daughter of Ayrshire and 
Biserta, bred also at the Southcourt Stud. Then His Royal Highness the 
Prince of Wales, like Mr. Leopold de Rothschild, won the whole of the sum 
with which he is credited with horses bred by himself at the Sandringham 
Stud, chiefly by the aid of Persimmon, who won £12,605 in two races — the 
Ascot Gold Cup and the Eclipse Stakes at Sandown Park — and after winning- 
these two great races Persimmon was withdrawn to the stud, and his list i^ 
full for this and the two succeeding seasons, at 300gs. each mare, his location 
being Sandringham. 

Since last year there have been many changes and additions to the Prince 
of Wales' stud at Sandringham. It then comprised ten brood mares, one of 
which, Poetry, with her foal by St. Serf, died last season, and four have been 
weeded out — namely, Foriuna by Scottish Chief, Giyolette by Merry Hampton, 
Jfargnsrite by Galopin, and Pinbasket by Hampton. During the past year 
their places have been filled by Chincara by Galopin, Laodamia by Kendal, 
Jleadoiv Chat by Minting, Operetta by Petrarch, Siceet Muscat by Sir Bevys, 
Thais by St. Serf, and Unrejined by Mask ; so that the stud, as it stands at 
present, has been increased to twelve brood mares, some of the very finest in 
the United Kingdom, and wdiose full breeding and doings at the stud are set 
out below : —

It will be seen above that the yearling.s now at the Sandringham Stud 
comprise three sons of St. Simon, and one each by Carbine, Donovan, and 
Prince Hartipton, with a filly by Ayrshire, while there is besides a brown filly, 
Lady Daisy, by Orme — Marguerite by Galopin, all so exceptionally good- 
looking that they are certain to follow in the footsteps of the several other 
winners reared under the watchful superintendence of Mr. E. Walker, the 
Stud Groom at Sandringham. In his letter of January 24th he wnites, 
'•'■ Diamond Jubilee is the best looking yearling I have ever seen, such a true 
shaped colt and fine mover, standing on the best of legs. He is a light bay, 
but will not be so big as Persimmon. Fitzsimmo7is is another beautiful colfe, 
with plenty of size, great length, and full of quality, who I expect will make 
a flyer some day. You know his dam, Merrie Lassie, can breed them to 
gallop, and had never been put to a first-class sire before. I am expecting 
her to foal at any time to St. Simon again, and she will be put this year to 
Persimmon, to whom also will be put Laodomia, Meadoio Chat, Pierette, and 
Sweet Muscat. After Fitzsimmons I like Der Freischutz next. He is a nice 
bay colt, and is the best Carbine I have seen. He goes very fast in the 
paddock and gallops like a stayer, so I feel sure he will make a good race-

horse. There is not a weed among our yearlings this year, and they are 
undoubtedly the best-looking lot yet bred by His Royal Highness." 

Since that letter was written Merrie Lassie has given the Sandringham 
Stud a bay colt by St. Simon, whom His Royal Highness may well expect to 
be a flyer, being out of the dam of Grig, Fosco, and Jest. Like every other 
stud, that of the Prince of Wales is subject to misfortunes, and they have 
been heavy this yeai-. Perdita II. cast a dead colt, full brother to Persimmon 
and Flm'izel II. ; while Fanchette was barren to Florizel II., Pierrette to 
Melton, and 77ms to Isinglass; but happily the foaling season was got 
thx'ough safely, with a result that gives to the Sandringham Stud colts by 
Sir Hugo, St. Simon, and St. Serf; and fillies by Florizel II. (2), Isinglass, 
St. Frusquin, and Ladas. In a later letter (April 12th), Mr. Walker 
writes : " You will, I am sure, be pleased to hear that Laodamia has got a 
very nice bay filly by Isinglass, which takes very much after her dam ; but 
our best foal is by St. Simon out of Merrie Lassie. We have also got a real 
clinking good brown tilly by Florizel II. out of Muscat, which takes very 
much after her sire in looks, and I hear Florizel II. is stamping his foals 
like himself, and I like to see a sire do that. Merrie Lassie has stood seven 
weeks yesterday to Persimmon, and I feel quite sure she is in foal. She 
is the first mare standing to Persimmon, and it will be very pleasant 
if His Royal Highness gets the first foal next year by his great favourite. 
He has had twenty-seven mares this year, five of the Prince's and twenty- 
two public mares, and, having such a beautiful temper, he appears to Kke 
stud life, and has taken kindly to his work, which is a great matter iu 
a sire." 

Such is the pi'esent state of the Sandringham Stud, which is sure to be 
more widely known Avhen it comes to fill the Royal paddocks at Hampton 
Court, where so many good runners were bred by Her Majesty the Queen, 
under the excellent management of the deeply regretted Sir George Maude, 
and so many famous stallions stood ; but none so grand as Persimmon, should 
the Bushey paddocks be his future destination. 

Referring again to the table of winners, it will be seen that Lord Rosebery, 
who has his breeding stud located at Mentmore and the Durdans, holds the 
fourth place with .£15,574, the larger portion of which was won by Velasquez, 
a son of Donovan and Vesta. Mr. R. Lebaudy, a gentleman hailing from the 
other side of the "silver streak," comes next with £13,080, the chief con- 
tiibutor to which was Count Schomberg, the handsome son of Attghrim, who 
has in him some six and-twenty strains of IVax)/, from which he doubtless 
inherits the stamina that enabled him to win the Chester Cup, the Queen's 
Vase at Ascot, and the Goodwood Cup, besides two other racts, of the 
aggregate value of <£3,275 ; but, unhappily, after achieving a succession of 
victories with several othir horses in his stud, M. Lebaudy has been, through 
ill-health, compelled to relinquish the turf (it is hoped only for a while), and 
his fine racing stud was sold at the Newmarket December Sales, realising 
the large sum of 28,81 5gs. ; and as it is important both to breeders and the 
owners of running horses to have on record, for handy inference, their 
breeding and the prices they severally realised, as well as the names of their

Referring again to the winning table, it will be seen that His Grace the 
Duke of Devonshire is well up in the list, as a Cavendish ought to be, having 
won o£ 10,230, chiefly with horses bred by himself, prominent among whom 
was Dieitdonne, the handsome son of AmpMon and Mon Droit by Isonomy, 
who won the Imperial Produce Stakes at Kempton Park and the Middle 
Park Plate, two races w'orth in the aggregate £5,450. Then the next in the 
list is Mr. C. D. Rose, another winner of upwards of £10,000, the chief 
contributor to which was Cyllene, a chestnut son of Bonavista and Arcadia 
(another Isonomy mare), who took four races worth £7,015, and is by many 
good judges considered the " crack " two-year-old of 1897. Cyllene was bred 
by his owner, who now doubtless regrets having sold his sire to the foreigners ; 
and unless he sends Arcadia across the silver streak to unite with Bonavista 
again, he might send her to JforioJi with good effect, to try and breed another 
as good as WinkfielcVs Pride, whose dam is by Isonomy out of Alihech by Hermit. 

Another breeder of no little note and long standing, Mr. Douglas Baird, 
comes next in the list with £9,562 to his credit, all won by sons of his favourite 
sire, Martagon, a fact not surprising considering how like to Ormonde he is bred. 
The two chief contributors to that sum were Champ de Mars and Cap Martin^ 
both two-year-olds, while seven others of the same age and two three-year-olds, 
Jacquemart and Ilermegild, were also contributors. Mr. llamar Bass haS' 
£8,067 to his credit, nearly all of which was won by Love Wisely, the in-bred 
son of Wisdom, whose place at the stud he is certain to fill well when 
withdrawn from the racecourse. Mr. L. Brassey is next in the list with 
over £8,000 to his credit, chiefly contributed by the two-year-old Orzil, the 
the fine son of Ayrshire and Merry Miser, who won five races worth £5,036. 
Lord W. Beresford, who attained no little success on the Indian turf, comes 
next with £7,867, contributed chiefly by Diakka, the American-bred son of 
Sailor Prince, and Meta II., an American-bred filly by Sensation. Sir J. 
Blundell Maple, Sir R. W. Griffith, and Mr. H. McCalmont, are all also on 
the £7,000 mark, with horses chiefly bred by themselves. 

Next come the qiiasi partners, Mr. M. D. Rucker and Mr. A. F. Calvert; 
with a trifle over £6,600 each, mostly contributed by horses purchased at 
different studs and sales ; followed by " Mr. Jersey," Mr. P. Lorillard, and 
Prince Soltykoff, all three being winners of upwards of £6,000 each ; the 



INTRODUCTION. Ixxxiii 



chief contributors for " Mr. Jersey " being the Australian Merman and the 
Irish-bred Bray Head by Arkloiv, full brother to Ormonde; while the progeny' 
of Sailor Prince and Sensation were Mr. Lorillard's chief winners ; and the 
progeny of Sheen and Gold were the best contributors to Prince Soltykoff's 
little pile. Then Captain Greer, with £5,742 to his credit, concludes the list, 
the greater part of which was contributed by the progeny of the most suc- 
ces.sful sire in Ireland — Gallimde by Isonomy. 

Another great stud, besides that of Mr. R. Lebaudy, was also unhappily 
broken up in 1897, that of the Marquis of Zetland at Aske, Richmond, 
Yorkshire, owing to his retiring from the turf. Formed as early as the 
middle of last century by Sir L. Dundas, one of the very first mares to occupy 
the Aske paddocks was the celebrated A la Grecque, a chestnut mare by 
Regains, her dam by Allworthy (son of Crab), dam by the Bolton Starling — 
Dairy Maid by Bloody Buttocks, bred by Mr. Pratt in 1763. Marske, the 
sire of Eclipse, was happily chosen to be her first mate, and from their union 
came a very celebrated hoi'se, Pontac, a good runner, as he won the Claret at 
Newmarket and five other races, while at the stud he was sire of thirty-five 
winners of £6,259, including the St. Leger, won by his famous son. Sir 
Thomas, for His Royal Highness the Prince of Wales (afterwards George IV.) 
in 1788. A la Grecqiie was herself a famous runner, and besides Pontac 
she bred four good winners, two of them being mares by Telemachus (son 
of Herod) —Emma and Maria, both good brood mares, the former of whom 
with Matron by Florizel, helped to lay the foundation of the famous Aske 
stud, which was sold by Messrs. Tattersall at Newmarket, and realised the 
large sum of £21,327, as will be seen by the annexed figures, to which will be 
found added names of the buyers : —

In regard to horse-breeding in Ireland, so far as concerns the owners of 
studs and private breeders of the thoroughbred horse, the season of 1897 has 
been eminently satisfactory, and they have every reason to be satisfied with 
the distinction gained in England by horses which first saw the light in the 
Emerald Isle. Never previously have horses bred in Ireland fared so well in 
races under Jockey Club rules. There is but little use in making this state- 
ment without furnishing proof of its truth, and the subjoined table afibrds 
ample evidence of the splendid manner in which Irish-bred horses acquitted 
themselves, and speaks volumes for the country in which they were reared, 
while they do an infinity of credit to their several breeders. The total value 
of races won by them amounts to a sum exceeding £60,000, a large part 
of which was contiibuted by the brilliant deeds of Galtee More, Mr. John 
Gubbins' splendid son of Kendal, who won in the aggregate £22,637, The 
names of the winning horses and their sires, together with the numjber and 
value of the races won by them, are as follows : —

It will be seen that Gallimde is the sire of no fewer than ten of the above 
winners, while the two next most successful sires are Kendal and Atlieling, 
Avith six and five winners respectively; and after them comes Castlereagh, 
whose early death has been a great loss to Irish breeders. In "The Irish 
Book Calendar " — a greatly improved work since Mr. T. Brindly has filled 
the office of Keeper of "The Irish Match Book," and Secretary to the 
Stewards of the Irish Turf Club — it will be seen, from the return of the 
winners in Ireland in 1897, that the three first-named stallions hold the same 
i-elative positions as sires in Ireland, while they are run very close by Torpedo, 
with Baliol, Marmiton, Hackler, and Craig Royston next ; and altogether the 
progeny of one hundi-ed and seventy-two sires are retui-ned as winners in 1897 
under Turf Club rules. The services of At/teling are no longer available for 
Irish breeders, as he has gone to America ; Bel Demonio has been taken by 
the foreigners ; while Sheldrake, who did good service in the West of Ireland, 
and Ascetic, sii*e of innumerable first-class steeplechasers and hunters, have 
both gone to the " happy hunting grounds," full of years and honours. 
Information regarding other sires, passed sound by the veterinary surgeons of 
the Royal Dublin Society for the use of Irish breeders, will be found at the 
end of this volume. 

Since the issue of the last edition of this work, in June 1896, death 
has played sad havoc among all ranks in the breeding as well as racing 
world; while several distinguished sires have likeAvise taken their depar- 
ture to the " happy hunting gi'ounds." During that brief period there have 
been summoned to another life the Eail of Bradfoi-d, Earl Cawdor, the Earl of 
Suffolk and Berkshire, Lord Hiudlip, Lord Dorchester, the Hon. Col. Forester, 
Col. Heyward, Mr. Edmund Tattersall, Mr. Hamar Bass, Dr. Freeman, Mr 
Hichard Johnson, and Mr. Joel, all well known for their love of the national 
pastime and fine horses, and in breeding which nearly all of them, but 
particularly the Earl of Bradford, took great interest ; while among the 
distinguished jockey's called away were George Barrett and T. J. Calder. 

Born in the same year as Her Majesty the Queen (1819), the Earl of 
Bradford, at the time of his death (March 9th), had reached his seventy- 
eighth year, during the greater part of which, after having filled the offices 
of Chamberlain and Master of the Horse to Her Majesty, he resided at his 
Shropshire seat, Weston Park, Shifnal, where he early formed a small stud, 
which, as time wore on, became larger, and in the end obtained considerable 
celebrity. This was chiefly owing to the famous Quick March (full sister to 
Vedette) having laid the foundation of the stud, as from her liord Bradford 
bred Bugle March, Quick Stream, Manotuvre (dam of Sir Hugo), Retreat, and 
several others ; while with other mares he also bred successfully, as evidence d 
by the performances of Knight of the Bath, Glendinning, Euxine, Piccalilli, 
Brenta, Posthuma, Hellespont, Grey Hen, Sv:ord, Dame Zucchero, Battlefield, 
Quicklime, Zealot, Foxglove, Limestone, Limelight, Zitza, Hemlock, Isobar, 
Livingstone, Whiielock, Invention, Flank March, Sir Hamo, Cuttlestone, and 
Sir Hugo. 

The two best hoises owned by Lord Bradford during his forty years con- 
nection with the turf were Chijijyendale and Sir Hugo. The former, wdth his

dam, AdversiUj, Lord Bradford purchased from Mr. Thomas Dawson (the 
elder of the four brothers Dawson, so celebrated as trainers) for 350^8. 
Chijyptndah was held over into his third year 'vnthout running, and with 
manifest advantage, as, in 1879, he placed nearly £7,000 to hLs noble owner's 
credit in Burlington Street. He commenced by winning the Prince's Park 
Plate at Liverpool, beating Palmbearer, who subsequently finished second to 
Sir Bevys for the Derby. He next won the Epsom Summer Plate, the Ascot 
Derby, and beat Silvio, the Derby and St. Leger winner of 1877, in the 
Hardwicke Stakes. He next suffered two defeats, and was then specially 
trained for the Cesarewitch, for which he was handicapped to carry 7st. 51b., 
and won in gallant style, after which he won a Queen's Plate in the same 
week. In 1880 Chip2)endale won the Great Metropolitan, the Gold Vase at 
Ascot, and the Jockey Club Cup, but could only get fifth in the Cesarewitch, 
in which he carried Lord Bradford's first colours, with the second borne by 
Retreat, who was fourth. In 1881 he ran again in the Cesarewitch, cai-rying 
8st. 121b., and made a bold bid for victory, but he had to succumb to Foxhall, 
to whom he was giving 141b., and who a fortnight later carried his penalty 
home successfully in the Cambridgeshire, showing clearly Chippendale to be a 
very great horse. Then, in 1882, he made another effort to win the Cesare- 
witch, but was again doomed to defeat, for (carrying 9st. 121b.) he was 
cleverly defeated by Corrie Roy (4yrs., 8st. 71b.). with City Arab (3yrs., 7st.) 
tliird. At the Houghton Meeting he, however, had his revenge on Coririe 
Roy by beating her. City Arab, Tristan, and Leonora, for the Jockey Club 
Cup, thus successfully winding up a brilliant turf career. 

Chippe7idale, who was by Rococo (son of Gemma di Vergy) — out of Adversity 
by Adventurer her dam Stockhausen by Stockioell — Citron by Sweetmeat her 
dam Echidna (The Baron's dam) by Economist — Miss Pratt by Blacklock, etc., 
though so superbly bred, was at the stud nothing like so successful as on the 
racecourse, but what he might have been had he lived it is difficult to say, as 
he was found dead in his box in 1893, leaving no son to represent him at the 
stud. The performances of Sir Hugo there is no occasion to recount here, 
as they will be found fully given on p. 129 ; but happily that superb son of 
Wisdom attained for Lord Bradfoi-d the highest honour of the turf by the 
great victory he achieved for the Derby in 1892, beating La Fleche, Bucen- 
taiire, and ten other runnei-s. At the commencement of his turf career 
Lord Bradford had a few horses trained by Mr. Tom Taylor (father of Alex. 
Taylor, the Manton trainer) and Mr. W. Arnull; but although elected in 
1864 a member of the Jockey Club, it was not until 1872 his colours were 
regularly seen on a racecourse, when Lord Bradford availed himself of the 
services of Mr. T. Wadlow, of Stanton, as trainer, and who has ever since 
had charge of all the horses bred at Weston-under-Lizard, Shifnal, under 
the careful superintendence of Mr. J. Wilkes, Stud Groom. 

John Frank Vaughan Campbell, Earl Cawdor, born June 11th, 1817, was 
the second inheritor of the title, the owner of vast estates in Wales and 
Scotland, surrounding Stackpole Court, as well as Golden Grove in the princi- 
pality, and Cawdor Castle, Nairn, N.B., notwithstanding which he failed to 
make any great figure either as breeder or the owner of running horses. It

was not until 1876 Earl Cawdor's colours were registered in Burlington 
Street, and lie never had more than two or three horses in training at one 
time, with either Mathew Dawson or Gray at Newmarket. The first horse xrf 
any note to earn a winning bracket for Lord Cawdor was the grandly bred 
Mavis by Macaroni out of Merlette, by The Baron, whom he purchased at the 
Cobham sale for 190gs. When two years old Mavis won two races, the prin- 
cipal of them being a match for 200gs. a side against Lord Rosebery's Eos- 
bach, conceding her 71b., which she won by a neck. The winner was ridden 
l)y F. Archer, and Roshach by H. Constable, who was the favourite at 6 to 4 
on. Mavis subsequently won only a Welter Handicap after which she 
became the property of Lord Falmouth, who put her to Galopin with the 
result of breeding Galliard, a very superior racehorse, but who has so far at 
the stud got nothing so good as himself. Brioche by Brown Bread out of 
Defamation, King Duncan by King G" Scots out of Prowess by Saunterer and 
Witchcraft by Kingcraft out of Pretence by Gladiateur, also carried Lord 
Oawdor's colours successfully, as did likewise 27ie General by Childeric, Lo- 
thario by Wild Gats, Menevia by Hydromil, and Stackjyole by Uam-pton, the 
three latter being bred by his lordship out of Bonita by Canary, her dam 
Energy by WeatJierhit. Ilermione by Yoimg Melbourne, her dam La Belle 
Ilelene by St. Albans out of Teterrima by Voltigeur, was also in Lord Cawdor's 
8tud, he having purchased her from Lord Ailesbury in 1879 ; and it is as the 
breeder of Perdita II. (dam of Persimmon and Florizel II.) his lordship's name 
will in future be best known in the breeding and racing world. Ilermione's 
first foal, Mamilius by Queen's Messenger, died a yearling, and her second, in 
1881 is Perdita II. by Hampton, after which she passed into the possession of 
Lord Falmouth, who bred from her Dorothy Draggletail by Springfield, and 
Bride of Netherby by Galliard, while she slipped foal in 1888 to Bend Or, in 
1889 was barren to Galliard, in 1890 slipped foal, and was barren in 1891-2, 
when she was covered by Fidlerton ^vith what result is not stated in vol. xviii. 
of the " Stud Book." So much for Persimmon's maternal granddam. In 
regard to Perdita II. she was trained by Mathew Dawson, and at Goodwood 
won a Selling Stakes beating Applause II. (dam of the Duke of Devonshire's 
Marvel) and some others. Entered to be sold for 200gs., she was bought in 
after her victory for 500gs. Subsequently Perdita II. won another Selling 
Sweepstakes at Newmarket, and was again bought in for 560gs. Afterwards 
she passed into the hands of Mr. Benholm from whom she was purchased by 
Lord Marcus Beresford on behalf of the Prince of Wales, with the result of 
His Boyal Highness breeding from her Florizel II., Persimmon, etc. 

Henry Charles Howard, in whom merged the titles of Sufiblk and Berk- 
shire, being eighteenth Earl of Suffolk and eleventh Earl of Berkshire, was 
born September 10th, 1833, and succeeded to the titles in 1876. He may be 
said to have been born a sportsman, being from the first an ardent lover of 
fine horses, a gallant rider to hounds, chiefly with the Badminton, Blackmoor 
Vale, Leicestershire, and Vale of White Horse packs, a good shot, and as a 
fisherman most expert with the fly. In connection with racing he was first 
known in his younger days, when Lord Andover, as one of the " Eomeo 
Lords," a confederacy of three — the others being Lord Courtenay and Lord 



Ixxxviii INTRODUCTION. 



Coventry — whose chief turf operations were confined to running platers, chief 
among whom was a horse named Borneo, bred by Mr. J. Parker, got by 
Romulus out of One Act by Annandale, her dam Extravaganza by Voltaire, 
who, when they got into any diflSculties with the book-makers, never failed to 
act the part of " relieving officer " just as did Historian, the grandson of Maria 
(the Irish Beesiving) by S'ir Hercules, for Sir Frederick Johnstone under similar 
circumstances. It was not until 1883 the Earl of Suffolk and Berkshire, 
though always a most popular nobleman, was elected a member of the Jockey 
Club, and in the very succeeding year he was chosen as steward of that august 
body, an appointment which, it need hardly be said, he filled with tact and 
excellent judgment ; while three years later he was elected steward of the 
National Hunt Committee. And it was as a member of both these governing 
bodies that Lord Suffolk lately exercised his influence in obtaining the sanction 
of the Jockey Club, permitting flat races under certam conditions to be run 
during the close season, and the necessity of which, as a step towards 
encouraging long distance races, everybody desirous of seeing the lost stamina 
of our horses restored must admit. The late Earl, who was educated at 
Harrow, had the theory of sport of all kinds at his fingei'-ends, as he was 
joint editor of the " Encyclopaedia of Sport," a work aiming at rivalling 
" Stonehenge," which is not yet completed, and consequently the decease of 
of the Earl of Suffolk and Bei'kshire, who with Mr. W. G, Craven was joint 
author of the "Racing Volume "in the Badminton Library, edited by his 
grace the Duke of Beaufort, came at a most inopportune moment. 

Lord Hindlip, though only a few years connected with the turf, was 
more fortunate than most of his compeers, for owing to following the advice 
of his trainer, Mr. T. Jennings, jun., he purchased Limasol by Poulet, and 
thus will be returned for all time to come as the owner of the Oaks winner 
of 1897, which is the only valuable prize Avith which his name has been 
associated during his racing career. In respect to taking a *' classic " prize 
he was moi-e fortunate than his friend and neighbour, Mr. Hamar Bass, 
who, although he took far more intei-est in breeding and racing, failed 
to attain that honour; and yet he displayed equally good, if not better, 
judgment in buying Love Wisely, who can be safely put down as one of 
the very best horses of the century. Mr. Hamar Bass effected some sur- 
prises on the racecourse, the two co^ips with Rusticus at Leicester being the 
most notable. He was one of the most popular men of his time, and had a 
nice stud of brood mares at Byrkley, Rangemore, where Riosticus reigns as 
Lord of the Harem ; and which it is to be hoped his bi-other, Lord Burton, 
will now carry on in his stead. The monster attendance at Mr. Bass's funeral 
told how vast was his popularity. 

On INIarch 5th, 1898, in Edmund Tattersall, there passed away a man who 
if not ennobled — which, perhaps, his position in society, as we have it, prevented 
his being — was unquestionably a noble man in every sense of the word. 
Robert Burns, the poet of the people, wrote " a man's a man for a' that, and 
a' that," and surely the horse-breeders and the owners of racing horses— aye, 
and the whole nation besides— must have found that Edmund Tattersall was 
not only the man for " a' that;" but for them also. Of almost commanding 



INTR OD UCTION, Ixxxix 



figure, with a handsome, open, manly face, on which was written in bold 
characters goodness and generosity, Mr. Edmund Tattersall well sustained the 
character of the founder of his house for integrity and benevolence. He was 
proud of his position at the head of the great firm over which he presided, 
which, if he did not found, he at least helped most materially to consolidate ; 
and he was still prouder of the profession he had adopted, and was un- 
questionably the best horse auctioneer the world has ever known. 

Mr. Edmund Tattersall was undoubtedly a " man of the century," known, 
it may well be said, to all the world. His life was a daily levee, that scarcely 
left him a moment's leisure for none cared to make an important venture in 
horse-ilesh without first consulting him ; and the courteous manner with which 
he received all who sought his opinion made him perhaps the most popular 
man of his time ; while he was certainly the most A\-idely known, and it is 
very probable that he has been shaken by the hand by some distinguished 
personage of every nationality under the sun. 

Being so occupied in helping others, Mr. Edmund Tattersall almost forgot 
himself. The descendant of the owner of IlighUyer, it might well have been 
expected that, with such opportunities as his position offered, he would during 
his long career have owned a few high-class running horses, or at least have 
formed an important breeding stud, but he aspired to neither. It is tiue that 
Mr. Tattex'sall had occasionally a horse or two in training, but they were 
never above plating form ; and it was not until a few years back, after 
becoming the owner of the Upper Park Paddocks at Newmarket, that he put 
together a few brood mares of such an indiflferent type that no good came of 
the speculation. He loved the Metropolis of the Turf, and the good he did 
to Newmarket and to studmasters, as well as all breeders of the thoroughbred 
horse, by the establishment of the July yearling sales is untold ; and that he 
was a fine organiser goes without saying, further proof of which is aflforded 
by the great success attending the Doncaster sales, as well as the more 
recently established December sales at the town he loved so well. There, in 
his room at the Rutland Arms Hotel, during each recurring meeting, he 
dispensed a princely hospitality, and his whole life was distinguished by 
kindness and generosity, even to the forgetfulness of his own material 
interests. This was especially the case in regard to some of the great yearling 
sales he had the conduct of at Middle Park and Cobham, which necessitated 
the addition to the conditions of the sale " that the youngsters were expected 
to be paid for before lemoval." At that period Mr. Tattersall told the writer 
there was between £30,000 and =£40,000 owing on the books of the firm for 
yearlings alone. The greater part of that large sum was doubtless eventually 
paid, and such has been the increase of the business of the firm that Mr. 
Edmund Tattersall left an ample foi'tuneof .£107,000, which he has equitably 
apportioned among his numerous children ; and if ever man was happy in his 
family circle, it was he who passed away on the ides of March, beloved by all 
who knew him well, and deeply regretted by the world at large. 

Within two days of a month after Mr. Tattersall had been called to 
another life, there followed him Mr. Richard Johnson, a gentleman almost as 
widely known, OAving to his having for upwards of forty years filled the oflice 



INTRO D UCTION. 



■of race judge in the north of England, where he was equally as popular as 
was the head of the great Knightsbridge firm in the south. Endowed with 
an. equally gentle and genial disposition, and with the same inflexible integrity 
and business aptitude, he found but few storms in his passage through life, 
which extended into his eighty-sixth year, as it was only on April 7th, 1898, 
he was called away. 

Born in Yorkshire in 1813 Mr. Johnson was also Yorkshire bred, and 
inherited a love of the horse — it need hardly be said of the racehorse — equal 
to that of any tyke. His father was propiietor of " Johnson's Calendar," then 
a formidable rival to the present official " Racing Calendar," and in his office 
he became an expert compositor. His next step was to take an appointment 
as sporting sub-editor and reporter in the service of the Yorkshire Herald, 
which he filled until 1844, when the death took place of the famous John 
Orton, racing historian and author of " Turf Annals of York and Doncaster," 
who had for many years previously filled the office of race judge of the 
northern circuit. It was immediately seen by his fellow citizens, interested 
in the maintenance of the racing on the Knavesmire, that no better appoint- 
ment to the vacant judgeship than Mr. Johnson could possibly be made, ar^d 
lie was forthwith installed into the office. This he first filled at Ripon in the 
same year, with the full satisfaction of all interested in the success of the 
races, and for the long period of forty-one years he continued in the public 
service, having had his judgment challenged but on very few occasions. At 
the "Pitman's Derby," in 1845, he first filled the chair at Newcastle, where 
lie had the pleasure of seeing Tommy Lye land Mr. Meiklam's grand mare, 
Inheritress, half a length in front of Merry Andrew, Liyhtning, and fourteen 
others — the largest field that ever ran for the Northumberland Plate. In 
1847 Mr. Johnson's services were engaged at Manchester, and in 1850 he 
received the appointment of Clerk of the Course at Doncaster. 

The race for the Derby was, strangely, never seen by Judge Johnson, who 
did not care for the noise and bustle of Epsom during the summer carnival ; 
mox-eover, he saw quite enough racing when himself acting as judge, without 
seeking " fresh fields and courses new " — to pai'a phrase a familiar quotation. 
During his long tenure of office, Judge Johnson never occupied the lx)x at 
Newmarket, but he on one occasion took Judge Clarke's place at Goodwood, 
the last-named gentleman being called away on legal business. On his retire- 
ment in 1885, Judge Johnson Avas presented with a silver inkstand and 
candlesticks by members of the Press, as a slight mark of the esteem in which 
he was held by them for the unvaryingly courteous treatment he oflered them 
and all with whom he came in contact ; and in the next year the York Race 
Committee gave him a handsome service of silver plate as " a tribute to that 
scrupulous integrity and sound judgment which have made his name hono\ir- 
iibly famous in racing annals." 



THE GIMCRACK ANNIVEESARY. 



ALTHOUGH the anniversary of the foundation of the York Gimcrack 
Club hasj been held in the ancient capital of the " great county erf 
broad acres " since 1769, it has only very lately come in for the special notice 
of the breeding or racing world. It was formed to celebrate the racing career 
and keep alive the memory of a very notable horse, Gimcrack, a grey colt, 
bred by a Mr. Green in 1760, got by Crip2)le — Miss Elliott by Greisewood's 
Partner (a grey horse, son of Partner — Button's Grey Barb mare, her dam 
Pay Wilkinson's dam by Why Not — dau. of Wilkinson's Turk — Woodcock), her 
dam by Partner — Grey Brocklesby by Bloody Buttocks, her dam by Greyhoundj 
(son of Chillahy — Slugey, a natural Barb mare) — Brocklesby Betty by Curwen's 
Bay Barb — the Hobby mare by the Lister Turk — Piping Peg, whose further 
breeding is unknown. 

The Crijyple (sire of Gimcrack), as well as his full brother Cygnet, were 
very noted sires, the former of whom was attached to the Royal haras at 
Hampton Court. The Cripple was bred by Lord Eglinton, and Cygnet by 
Lord Godolphin, both got by his famous Arabian out of '■^ Godolphin" Blossom, 
a name given to distinguish his dam from her full sister '' Ancaster" Blossom, 
the property of the Duke of Ancaster. Both were daughters of Crab (the 
celebrated grey son of the Alcock Arabian), dam by Flying Childers — Jliss 
Belvoir by G^'ey Grantham (Broivnloto Turk), her dam by the Paget Turk — 
Betty Percival by the Leeds Arabian, her dam by Spanker — Old Morocco mare 
{Spanker's own dam), bred about 1690 by Lord d'Arcy. 

Being thus bred, Gimcrack could hardly fail, though but a mere galloway 
in size, to be the great horse he proved himself to be. He ran in thirty-five 
races, twenty-seven of which he won. He commenced his turf career at Epsom 
on May 31st, 1764, beating a field of six horses, for a ,£50 Plate, 2-mile heats, 
in the first of which he distanced one of his competitors and two others in the 
second, eventually winning easily in two heats. At Guildford, early in June, 
he won another £50 Plate, beating three opponents ; and another Plate of 
the same amount in July at Winchester, beating Lord Castlehaven's Sapp>ho 
by Regidus. Then, in August he took another <£50 Plate from Mr. Vernon's 
^ose at Bedford, in three 2-mile heats ; and later the same month, for another 
■£50 Plate at Barnet, he beat a field of four opponents in two 4-mile heats ; 
and then at Evading he beat a field of three for a further <£50 Plate, while at 
Burford he won another, which may be said to have almost ended Gimcrack's 
plating days, as he then became the property of Mr. Wildman, once part 



THE GIMCRA CK A NNI VERSA R Y. 



ownei" of Eclipse. In that gentleman's colours he won a <£50 Plate on the 
last four miles of the Beacon Course, beating Po-ophet, Treasure, and another ; 
after which Gimcrack passed into the possession of Lord Bolingbi-oke, and in 
that famous nobleman's colours won a match at Newmarket for l,000gs. a 
side over the Beacon course, carrying 7st. 41b., against Mr. Panton's Rocket 
by Blank, aged, Sst. 71b., a grey horse, and also bred very much alike to 
Gimcrack. This match was run on the same afternoon that the Duke of 
Cumberland's King Herod beat the Duke of Grafton's Antinous by Blank 
over the Beacon Course for l,000gs. a side. Then in the following July 
Gimcrack won for Lord Bolingbroke another match over the Beacon course 
for IjOOOgs. a side, beating Lord Lowther's Ascham by Reguhts. In October 
;\t Newmarket, same year, Gimcrack was beaten in his attempt to give 71b. 
to Lord Rockingham's Bay Malton over the Beacon Course in a match for 
oOOgs. a side; but at the Second October Meeting he beat the Duke of 
Cumberland's Drone by Y. Cade, giving him 211b. over the Beacon Course. 
There now happened an extraordinary episode in the hfe of Gimcrack. The 
French Count Lauraguais being concerned in a heavy wager to find a horse 
able to compass 22 1 miles within an hour, came to England and bought 
Gimcrack, took him across the silver streak, won his match, and returning 
to England, the next appearance of this gallant little hoi'se was at 
Newmarket, on April 28th, 1767, when, running in the colours of Count 
Lauraguais, he was defeated for o£50 Plate (4 miles), over the Round 
Course, by the Duke of Kingston's Tyrant by Spectator, having behind him 
eight others ; but he won a £50 Plate at Wisbeach, another at Ascot Heath, 
and others at Marlborough and Wells ; but at Wantage he met more than 
his match, as Major Brereton's Otterley, singularly enough another grey, 
lieat him and two others, and at Odsey he was also beaten by 7'ortoise, a son 
of Snap. In 1768, Gimcrack, still in Count Lauraguais' colours, won the Give 
and Take .£50 Plate at Epsom (2-mile heats), £50 at Ascot (4-mile heats), 
the Silver Bowl at Salisliury (4-mile heats). Towards the end of the year, 
Gimcrack became the property of Sir Charles Bunbury, and he ran in his name 
for the o£50 Plate, Ditch-in, but was defeated, along with four others, by the 
Duke of Grafton's Guardian by Spectator. He however, picked up the Odsey 
£50 Plate for the sporting baronet, in two heats of 4 miles, beating a field of 
.>ix runners in November. 

Having now got into proper hands, Gimcrack again came out in 1769 in 
winning form. At Newmarket, in the spring, he first appropriated a Sweep- 
stakes of 50sovs. each, Ditch -in Course, from llermione hy Blank and Amazon 
1>y Cygnet, mares bred alike to himself ; then he beat Mr, Vernon's Baber 
by Blank in a match 300gs. each (9st. each), easily, over the Beacon Course, 
and at the same meeting he won the £50 Plate for all ages, on the Round 
Course, beating Cardinal I\ff, Bay Malton, and six others. This was a 
great performance, and after it Lord Grosvenor bought Gimcrack iov l,200gs., 
and at the Second Spring Meeting he won a match in his lordship's 
colours, for SOOgs. a side (9st. each), beating Lord Rockingham's Jacko by 
the Rockingham Godolphin Colt, over the Beacon Course. On August 24th, 
Gimcrack ran for the first time on the Knavesmire at York, for .£50 Plate 



THE GIMCRA CK A NNI VERSA R Y. 



(weight for age, 4 miles) given by the City, for which, in a field of six 
runners, he could only get third to Chatswwth by Blank, the property of Sir 
Lawrence Dundas (ancestor of the Marquess of Zetland), and Mr. Wentworth's 
Tortoise, having behind him Jloricick Ball, Bay Malton, and another. In 
1770 Gimcrack won the Whip over the Beacon Course at Newmarket, beating 
Lord Rockingham's Pilgrim by Sampson (lOst. each); but at the Second 
Spring Meeting Sir Charles Bunbury's Bellario by Bnlliant beat him and 
four others for the Jockey Club Cup. Then on July 23rd he won £50 Plate 
in Mr, Green's name at Blandford in two 4-mile heats, beating Myrmidon : 
and in October at Newmarket Bellario again beat him for a Sweepstakes. 
But the turf had not yet done with this extraordinarily game little horse, 
for on April 1st, 1771, Gimcrack again carried the yellow banner of the 
Grosvenors to victory for the <£50 Plate for six-year-olds and upwards, over 
the Bound Course at Newmarket, beating Sir C. Bunbury's Bellario, aged, 
Lord March's Sportsman, Lord Bolingbroke's Cludfont, Lord Orford's Hevip, 
Lord Farnham's Guardian, Lord Eockingham's Tantrum, Mr. Wentworth's 
2Iyrmidon, and Mr. Cox's Teetotum ; and thus closed in triumph the racing 
career of a horse whose prowess on the turf has ever since been annually 
celebrated by the ancient fraternity of York Gimcracks ; and the proceedings 
at whose recent festival are given in full to make some amends for the neces- 
sarily dry details of a work like the Horse-breeders' Handbook. 



THE GIMCRACK CLUB. 

Lord Rosebery's Turf Experiences. 

The York Race Committee and the brethren of the ancient fraternity of 
York Gimcracks held their one hundred and thirty-first annual dinner 
at the Station Hotel, York, when the principal guest was the Earl of 
Rosebery, K.G., whose bay filly Mauchline was the winner of the Gimcrack 
Stakes at the York August Race Meeting. Mr. J. Melrose, chairman of the 
York Race Committee, presided, and there were also present : The Earl of 
Feversham, Lord Wenlock, Lord Deramore, the Lord Mayor of York 
(Mr. Edwin Gray), the Sherifi'of York (Mr. H. Copperthwaite), the Hon. R. 
Parker, Mr. J. G. Butcher, Q.C., M.P., Mr. W. H. Wilson Todd, M.P., 
Alderman Sir Joseph Terry, Alderman Sir Christopher Milward, Sir Reginald

Mr, J, G. Hodgson, and Mr. J. Teesdale (secretary, York Race Committee), 
The visual loyal and patriotic toasts having been duly honoured. 
Lord Wenlock proposed " Success and Perpetuity to the Gimcrack Club," 
coupled with the name of the Earl of Rosebery, K.G., owner of Mauchline. 
(Applause.) He said he was not himself closely identified with racing, but 
he believed he accompanied Lord Rosebery on the very first time almost that 
either of them ever went on to a racecourse. They were both boys at Eton 
at the same time, and they arranged between them that they would go over 
one afternoon and see the races at a place called Ascot. (Laughter.) Having 
recalled in humorous style the circumstances of that eventful afternoon. 
Lord Wenlock said they miglit congratulate Lord Rosebery on the very 
successful manner in which he had prosecuted his career on the turf, and 
had done so much to raise its tone, to carry forward all the chief character- 
istics which surrounded the best of English racing, and himself to show that 
by constant perseverance and attention to the breeding of good horses, a man 
might be successful in winning the best classic races of the turf, (Applause.) 
Speaking of Lord Rosebery's success in the Gimcrack Stakes, the proposer of 
the toast said it had rarely been the case that the race had been won by one 
who had taken so prominent and active a part, not only in the great affairs 
of this country, but in upholding racing traditions and the honour of the 
English turf. (Renewed applause.) 

The Earl of Rosebery, who was cordially received, said : " Mr, Chairman, 
my lords, and gentlemen, — I am profoundly grateful for the terms in which 
Lord Wenlock has proposed my health. I envy him the length of his 
memory (laughter), but for all that I find myself in a somewhat embar- 
rassing position on this occasion. In the first place, I had hoped to come here 
with our friend Sir F. Lock wood, the cause of whose absence we deeply 
deplore (hear, hear). In the next place, I find myself compelled to respond, 
or honoured by responding, for the Club which I meet to-night for the first 
time, and with which, therefore, I cannot be so intimately acquainted as 
some of you. But there is another difficulty still, I have won this race three 
times in my life, but I do not ever remember being asked to dinner before, 
(Laughter.) Whether it was that various associated circumstances, to which 
my friend has so feeUngly alluded, did not then exist, or from whatever cause, 
it is only in recent years that I have become acquainted with the dinner of 
the Gimcrack Club. And what makes it more peculiar is this, that, owing to 
the precedents of late years, the Gimcrack Club has been in relation to the 
the turf very much as a Lord Mayor's dinner stands in relation to politics. 
It is given to the guest of the evening to dehver himself of some dissertation 
on current turf matters and offer suggestions for some violent reform. Of 



THE GIMCRA CK A NNI VERSA R Y. 



that I am quite incapable. If you welcome me here under those pretences I 
must tell you at once I am an fmposter. I very seldom go to races, and if I 
go to see a particular race I usually arrive not long before the race take.^ 
place, and go very soon after it has been decided. And, as regards the rule?^ 
of the Jockey Club, there was a time when I used to know something about 
them ; but they have been so changed and modified since that period that I 
am informed by experts that there are only two people who, in the belief of 
the most credulous, have any thorough acquaintance with them. One is Mr. 
Weatherby, and the other is Mr. James Lowther — and I am not perfectly 
sure of Mr. James Lowther. (Laughter.) Under those circumstances it is a 
matter of embarrassment to know what I am to say to you to-night. I can- 
not extol the merits of the animal that won the Gimcrack Stakes, to which I 
am indebted for this honour, because, except on the occasion when she won 
this historic event, she had displayed no marked excellence, and offers no 
px'ospect of it. (Laughter.) 

" But, after all, I can always give advice ; that is the perpetual prerogative 
of a person who has nothing to say. I am a little alarmed, I confess, at the 
juvenile reminiscences of my friend. Lord Wenlock, because I am afraid that 
it may encourage my sons to take in their turn to racing. If I am asked to 
give advice to those who are inclined to spend their time and their money on 
the turf, I should give them the advice that Punch gave to those about to 
marry, ' Don't.' (A laugh.) That, I admit, is a discouraging remark for an 
assembly of sportsmen, and I perceive that it is received in the deadest silence. 
(Laughter.) I will give you my reasons for so doing. In the first place, the 
apprenticeship is exceedingly expensive ; in the next place, the pursuit is too 
engrossing for any one who has anything else to do in this life ; and, in the 
third place, the rewards, as compared to the disappointments, stand in the 
relation of, at the most, one per cent. (Laughter.) Well, an ounce of fact 
is worth a ton of exhortation, and I will give you my experience — and it will 
be an exceedingly genial and pleasant dinner if everybody truthfully gives 
theirs. (Laughter.) I will give you my experience of the turf, and you shall 
judge whether I have not some foundation for the advice that I give. A 
great many years ago — too many years ago from one point of view — and at 
an early age — much too eai-ly an age from every point of view — I conceived 
the ambition to win the Derby. (Hear, hear.) For a quarter of a centurj- 
I struggled ; sometimes ran second, sometimes ran third ; very often I ran last. 
But at last the time arrived when, as Lord Wenlock reminded you, I was 
about to realise the fruition of my hopes, I was with the second Ladas about 
to win the Derby, and I ought to have been the happiest of men. 

" Well, after a quarter of a century of fruitless expectation, I won the 
Derby ; but what was the result ? I at that time held high office, as Lord 
Wenlock has also reminded you, under the Crown. I was immediately 
attacked from quarters of an almost inspired character for owning racehorses 
at all. (Laughter.) With very little knowledge of the facts, and with much 
less of the charity that thinketh no evil, and no information, I was attacked 
with the greatest violence for owning a racehorse at all. I then made the 
discovery which came to me too late in life — that what was venial and 



THE GIMCRACK ANNIVERSARY. 



innocent in the other offices of the Government, in the Secretary of State and 
the President of the Council, was criminal in the First Lord of the Treasury. 
(Laughter.) I do not even know if I ought not to have learnt another lesson. 
Although without guilt and offence I might run seconds and thirds, or even 
last, it became a matter of torture to many consciences if I won the Derby. 
(Laughter".) 

" But my troubles did not end there. Shortly afterwards we had a General 
Election, and I then found that, having received abundant buffets on one 
cheek from the smiter, I was now to receive them on the other. I was then 
assailed, or rather those associated with me were assailed, not because we were 
too sporting, bvit because we were not sporting enough. Leagues and associa- 
tions with bigh-sounding names and unerring principles were started to attack 
us, on the ground that we were not supporters of sport, I having already 
suffered so severely from having been too much of a sportsman. (Laughter.) 
Well, I say, then, I have a right to give advice, having suffered on both sides 
— for being too sporting and for not being sporting enough. I then hoped 
that my ti oubles were over. I withdrew into the sanctity of private life, and 
felt that then, at any rate, I could no longer be assailed, and that I 
should be enabled to pursue what I believe is facetiously called the ' sport of 
kings ' without any particular detriment. 

" But here again I was mistaken. Last year I thought, as so many of us 
have thought, that I possessed the horse of the century, and I believe that I 
did own a very good horse until he was overtaken by illness. But I at once 
began, as foolish turfites do, to build all sorts of castles in the air — to buy 
yachts — (laughter) — and to do all sorts of things that my means would permit 
of, (Laughter.) But from the very moment I began to form these projects 
the curse fell upon me. (Laughter.) From October 1st, 1896, to October 1st, 
1897, I ran second in every great race in which I ran except two, which I 
won ; and I think that when I advise those who are about to race not to do 
so, I am justified by the experience which I have laid before you in so 
harrowing a manner. (Laughter.) 

" Now, is there no compensation for those who pui-sue a sport which is 
carried on under such difficulties? I myself am of opinion that there are 
friendships formed and a knowledge of the world formed on the turf which 
are invaluable to any man who wishes to get on in life. (Hear, hear.) There 
was a famous lady who lived in the middle of this century, Harriet Lady 
Ashburton, who summed up her views on the subject in a remark which has 
been preserved by the late Lord Houghton. She said, ' If I were to begin 
life again I should go on the turf, merely to get friends. They seem to me 
to be the only people who really hold together. I do not know why. It may 
be that each man knows something that would hang the other ; but the effort 
is delightful and most peculiar." (Laughter.) Well, if that was the cause of 
turf friendship the effect would be most peculiar. But of this I am perfectly 
certain, that is not the real basis of turf friendships. I know nothing that 
would hang any of those I have known on the turf, but I am quite sure that 
if anybody bad known anything that would hang me about, three years ago, 
I should not be in life at this moment. (Laughter.) 



THE GIMCRACK ANNIVERSARY. 



" But there must be more than friendship ; more than secrets which are 
too dangerous for people to cai-ry about with them, which constitute the real 
bond of union on the turf. Of course, many men say that it is gain. I 
don't think anybody need pursue the turf with the idea of gain — (laughter) — 
and I have been at some trouble to understand why I and others under 
singular difficulties have pursued this most discouraging amusement. I see 
my trainer looking at me from a distant table with an enquiring eye. He 
could tell you probably better than I could tell you ; but so far as I am 
concerned, the amusements of the turf do not lie on the racecourse— they lie 
in the breeding of a horse ; in that most delightful furniture of any park or 
enclosure, the brood mare and the foal ; in watching the development of 
the foal, the growth of the horse, and the exercise of the horse at home. 

" I don't believe, however, that even that would be sufficient if we had 
not had some secret ambition to lure us on. It is obviously not in being 
winners of the Ten Thousand Guineas Stakes and such races, for these are 
practically unapproachable; but after very careful analysis from all the 
facts that have come under my observation, I believe it to be an anxious 
desire of aspirants for fame connected with the turf to become the owner 
of what is called the "horse of the century." (Hear, hear.) Whether they 
will ever do so or not is a matter of very great doubt in all their minds, and 
how they are to set about it must be a matter of still more anxious 
inquisition. There is the method of purchase ; but I speak in the presence 
of a collection of gentlemen, some of whom, perhaps, breed horses for sale, 
or have bred horses for sale, and I therefore do not venture to speak of that 
method with disparagement ; but I don't think the ' horse of the century ' 
will ever be acquired at auction. Then there is the method of abstract 
theory and historical law. There is an idea that by some connection with 
the Byerly Turk, which in itself has a horrible Eastern flavour about it, 
that you may acquire the 'horse of the century.' Lastly, there is the 
method of numbers — that new and fashionable method of numbering. You 
do something on paper that looks like a rule-of-three sum, and in a moment 
you have the ' horse of the century.' (Laughter.) I am sure that we do not 
believe in any of these ways. I believe the Goddess of Fortune plays a great 
part in the production of the ' horse of the century.' What we, who are 
striving to produce that miraculous animal, can fold to our bosom is this — 
that the century is drawing to a close, and that possibly we may have better 
luck in producing it in tlie twentieth century than we had in producing it in 
the nineteenth. (Applause.) 

" There was a relative of mine whose name may have been known to some 
of you as an eccentric lady who lived in this city. She also dreamed of 
having a miraculous animal of this description. She expected to possess 
a mare who should be born with a back like a saddle, — (laughter) — who 
should carry the prophet into Jerusalem, with Lady Hester by her side. 
(Renewed laughter.) She obtained the horse, but the prophet never arrived. 
(Loud laughter.) 

" Now, gentlemen, across all these dreams of the future there is one 
cloud in the horizon. We may fancy that we can feel the sobering influence 

9 



THE GTMCRACK ANNIVERSARY. 



of the motor car. As yet it is only in its infancy, and is as yet rather given 
to afford a mild sensation or a violent shock to its patrons, combined with a 
considerable smell of oil and a rattle of wheels. We may not imagine 
Lord Londesborough hunting the Quorn hounds, or inspecting a foreign 
army from the back of a motor car. (Laughter). We may not yet be able 
to realise his Royal Highness the Prince of Wales winning the Derby with 
a motor on Epsom Downs. (Laughter.) Let us hope, at any rate, for the 
best. I believe, gentlemen, that so long as institutions like the Gimcrack 
Club are kept in full vigour, and are not allowed to die out, we have a fair 
prospect of racing before us. (Applause.) 

" I must say one word, in conclusion, about the toast committed to my 
charge. It is that of the Gimcrack Club, and I see opposite me an engi-aving 
of the picture, which I am so fortunate as to possess, by Stubbs, of the very 
beautiful little animal. I am not quite sure why it is that the Gimcrack 
Club was founded and associated with York, because, as a matter of fact, I 
looked over his performances this morning, and I found that out of his veiy 
few defeats one of them took place on York racecourse — (laughter) — and his 
"victories were usually in the South of England. We can never account for 
these things, and it is at any rate a great thing to have kept alive the 
memory of that gallant little horse (which I don't suppose stood over fourteen 
hands when alive) for nearly a century and a half in this ancient and vener- 
able city. (Applause.) He was a horse which I think anybody would fear 
to possess now with the conditions that he was to run two or three four-mile 
heats every week for .£50 ; and having been so valuable and admired as to 
found a club of his own, he constantly changed hands, and was once even 
allowed to become the possession of a foreigner. (Laughter.) That, I think, 
is perhaps a danger that we escape. There must have been heavy hearts iu 
York when Gimcrack became the property of a Frenchman. (Laughter.) 
But he was reclaimed and lived to a good old age, and so has immortalised 
himself. (Hear hear.) 

" But let me draw one concluding moral. This is the 131st dinner of the 
Gimcrack Club. He lived one hundred and thirty years ago. How many 
poets, how many philosophers, aye, how many statesmen, would be remem- 
bered one hundred and fifty years after they had lived ? May we not draw 
from this fact the conclusion that the sport that we honour to-night, we 
believe, was never better and purer than at this moment ; never more 
honest in its followers ; never pursued with greater interest. From the 
honour as apart from the lucre of the turf may we not draw this conclusion, 
that this sport -will not perish in our land whatever our enemies may do — 
(applause) — and that, however festive our celebrations to-night may be, a 
century hence our descendants will be toasting the Gimcrack Club, and 
liailing what I hope Avill be a more reputable representative of the winner of 
the Gimcrack Stakes? " (Loud applause.) 

The Hon. E. Parker then proposed the " Jockey Club," a body which, he 
said, was held in high estimation. Many thought they hnd a most easy time 
of it, and that their office was an absolute sinecure, but anybody who followed 
and took an interest in racing must be quite aware that their duties were 



THE GIMCRACK ANNIVERSARY. 



exceedingly onerous and very arduous. It was an extraordinary thing to 
him that the decisions of such a constituted governing body should be taken, 
as they were taken, by the public generally. He accounted for it because 
the public knew that any alterations of their rules, and any decisions they 
gave, were perfectly unbiased, and that justice was meted out to every one 
coming before them. (Applause.) It had been suggested that the Jockey 
Club should be constituted a more representative body ; but he maintained 
that if they went through the list of members they would find that it was a 
thoroughly representative body. He believed they might be assured that, 
so long as the Jockey Club was composed as it is now, racing will flourish 
and continue. (Applause.) 

The Earl of Feversham, in responding, said a system of racing intended 
to encourage the breeding of good horses was worthy of support, and was a 
national benefit. Racing encouraged the spii'it of adventure which had 
carried the English name into all parts of the world. (Applause.) 

Ml'. H. CoPPERTHWAiTE (Sheriff of York) proposed the " City Members." 

Mr. J. G. Butcher, Q.C, M.P., responded, remarking that the House of 
Commons would be wise if they refrained from upholding any restrictions on 
sports and amusements which were not sanctioned by the public opinion and 
wishes of the nation. (Applause.) 

The toast of "The Press" was given by Mr. T. Milvain, Q.C, and was 
acknowledged by Mr. John Corlett. 

The last toast was " The York Race Committee," proposed by the Lord 
Mayor of 1"ork (Mr. E. Gray). The Chairman, in responding, said the 
committee were continually striving to keep the York Meeting in line with 
the best meetings. The proceedings then closed. 

As was remarked by Lord Rosebery in his very truthful and amusing 
speech, it is not easy to see why Gimei'ack should be more honoured by the 
citizens of Y^ork than by the denizens of Newmarket ; for on the Knavesmire 
he failed to carry Lord Grosvenor's colours to \T.ctory, while he was four 
or five times successful over the Beacon and other courses at the capital 
of the turf, as has been stated above. His performances, however, show 
him to be worthy of all the honour given him, for not only was he successful 
as a racehorse, but as a stallion also. Not only did Gimcrack earn great 
distinction as a sire in the premier stud of England, that since has given 
English breeders a Touchstone and an Ormonde, but his sons, Medley and 
Clockfast, carried his fame to America, where they made a great name and 
must certainly be considered as among the principal founders of the American 
stud. In the Eaton Stud Gimcrack was the sire of numerous winners, among 
them being Gnxy Rohin, his dam Snapdragon by Snap, winner of the Great 
Sweepstakes of 5,600gs. run for at the Newmarket Second Spring Meeting, 
1777. This was one of the most remarkable races ever run at the head- 
quarters of the turf. It Avas a Sweepstakes of lOOgs. each, p.p., for four- 
year-olds (colts 8st., fillies 7st. 111b.), Beacon Course. There were fifty-six 
subscribers, and nineteen horses started, the result being, as stated, in favour 
of Lord Grosvenor's grey colt Gh'cy Robin by Gimcrack, Lord Farnham's baj' 



THE GIMCRACK ANNIVERSARY. 



colt Prince by Herod second, and Lord Abingdon's bay colt PotSos third. 
What Medley and Clochfast did in America may be seen in Mr. S. D. 
Bruce's well-known woi-k, " The Thoroughbred Horse, his Origin, and how to 
Breed Him," pubKshed at New York in 1892. 

It may, however, be here stated that Medley was bred by a Mr. Medley 
in 1776, and Clockfast by Lord Grosvenor in 1774. Medley, Hke his sire, 
was a grey horse, his dam being Arminda by Snap — Miss Cleveland by Regulus, 
a mare in the stud of Mr. Shafto. He was sold by his breeder to Sir John 
Lade, in whose colours he won several races at Newmarket, and from whom 
he was purchased by Mr. Malcolm Hart, a Virginian gentleman, and taken 
to the United States, where he was known as Hart's Medley, and begat many 
winners, his blood being found in America almost as plentifully as that of 
Diomed or Glencoe. The dam of Clockfast was Miss Inghatn, a daughter of 
Regulus, her dam Miss Doe by Sedhury. He was likewise a grey horse, and 
ran three times in England in the name of Mr. Alcock, and won one before 
being sent to America, where he was also a winner, and at the stud helped to 
perpetuate the fame of his sire, Gimcrack, on the other side of the Atlantic. 
The early founders of the American Stud very well knew what they were 
about when they bought Medley and Clockfast, the granddam of Medley, as 
well as the dam of Clockfast, being got by Regulus, the best son of the 
Godolphin, both on the racecourse and at the stud. On the turf he won 
many races, including eight Royal Plates, and was never beaten, while his 
most distinguished female progeny includes Spiletta, the dam of Eclipse, 
Gan'ick, Proserpine, and A-la-Grecgice, the dam of Pontac, etc., besides the 
granddam of Medley and dam of Clockfast.

AMPHION. 

(the property of general BYRNE, TEKELS CASTLE, CAMBERLEY.) 

Will le located during 1898 and fullowing Seasons at the Compton Stud, Gillingham, 
Dorset, where he will serve a limited numier of approved mares {besides a few of his 
owners') at 150gs. each. Mares j^foving barre?i to Amphion will be taken the following 
Season at half the advertised fee, and special terms will be granted for several mares 
the property of the same owner. All applications to be made to tlve Manager of tJie 
Compton Stud, as above. 

Amphion, by Speculum or Rosebery, was bred in 1886 by Mr. G. S. Thompson, at 
the Moorfields Stud, and is the second produce of Suicide (also the dam of Despera- 
tion, etc.) by Speculum, bred in 1870 by Mr. C. Clark. He is a rich chestnut with 
blaze face and some white on his hind fetlocks, stands 15 hands 3in., girths 6ft. 3in., 
measures S^in. below the knee, and is a horse of the most perfect symmetry with 
fine propellmg power. Amphion had a long and most distinguished turf career, com- 
mencing when two years old and continuing weU into his fifth year. He made his 
first appearance in 1888, at Croydon, in the Spring Two- Year-Old Plate of SOOsovs., 
which he won easily from Ravenswood, Outcry, Mark, L' Abbesse de Jouarre, Eulalia, 
and three others. At the Bibury Club Meeting he won the Champagne Stakes easily 
from Kettlebury, Clodpole, Dark Blue, and Houndsditch ; and next took the Great 
Kingston Stakes of 470sovs., beating Yard Arm (second), Ladybird (third), and four 
others. At Kempton Park, Fleur-de-Lys, in receipt of 2st., beat him for the Cham- 
pion Nursery Stakes ; and at the Sandown Park Autumn Meeting, Theophilus, 
receiving 181b., beat him for the Orleans Nursery Handicap ; while at Derby he was 
beaten by Eulalia, to whom he was giving 2st., for the Chesterfield Nursery Handicap. 
The performances of Amphion when three years old, in 1889, were quite phenomenal, 
winning, as he did, the Great Jubilee Stakes at Kempton Park, besides four other 
valuable races, while he was second for two others. His first victory was at Derby, 
where, carrying 6st. 131b., he beat Johnny Morgan (4yrs., 8st. lib.), Aperse (4yrs., 
7.st. 9113.), and seven others for the Doveridge Handicap (Im.). For the Great Jubilee 
Stakes, worth 2,850sovs., Amphion, with 100 to 8 betted against him and carrying 
7st. 111b., defeated Screech Owl (5st. 121b., second), and The Rejected (5yrs., 8st. 31b., 
third), while among the other runners were Link Boy, Reve dOr, Goldseeker, Lisbon, 
Martley, Theophilus, Love in Idleness, etc. On the Royal course Amphion took two 
races — viz., the Fern Hill Stakes of 570.sovs., beating LAbbe Morin, Paloma, Over- 
seer, Sweet Briar, Homely, and Lord George ; and the New Biennial Stakes of 
SlOsovs., for which his only opponents were Lord George and Ingot. At Goodwood, 
in a field of eighteen horses, he was second to Dog Rose, giving him 1st. ; while at 
the Newmarket Houghton Meeting he was second to Ormuz for the Three- Year-Old 
Free Handicap. In 1890, when four years old, several most brilliant performances 
marked the turf career of Amphion. He began badly by suffering defeat for the 
Esher Stakes at Sandown Park, won by Sainfoin, who was receiving from him 
2st. 51b. ; and at Kempton Park, Imp, in receipt of 2st. 111b., beat him for the Great 
Jubilee Stakes. His time at length came at Ascot, where the Biennial Stakes of 
605sovs. fell to him, beating his old and only antagonist. Lord George ; and then, 
with 6 to 1 against him and carrying 9st. 101b., he won the valuable Hardwicke Stakes, 
worth 2,5 14sovs., beating Sainfoin (3yrs., 8st. 81b.), Siirefoot (3yrs., 8st. 81b.), Nun- 
thorpe (4yrs., y.st. 71b.), and Hayraddin (3yrs., 7st. 71b.) — a great victory, as it was 
achieved easily by a length. At Manchester he won the Lancashire Plate, worth 
9,091sovs., beating Martagon (second), Corstorphine (third), Orion (fourth). Memoir, 
Orvieto, Gold, St. Serf, and Simonetta. At the Newmarket First October Meeting 
Amphion beat Memoir and Blue Green for the Champion Stakes of 752sovs.; but 
later in the week Sheen (5yrs.) effected his overthrow for a Plate of 995sovs. (two 
miles). In 1891 Amphion achieved two remarkable victories. At the Newmarket 
Craven Meeting he very easily effected the overthrow of Mark Price, Mons Meg, 
Le Nord, Rathbeal, Star, and Susiana, for the March Stakes of l,000sovs. ; and at 
Ascot he beat Signorina and colt by Petrarch — Doll Tearsheet (3yrs.) for the Rous 
Memorial Stakes of 925sovs. Then at Stockbridge he walked over for the Stock- 
bridge Cup ; and he ran his last race at Leicester, fourth (carrying lOst. 71b.) to 
Rusticus (5yrs., 7st.), Victoricus (4yrs., 7st. 71b.), and Enniskillen (3yrs., Cst. 71b.), for 
the Leicestershire Royal Handicap, having a field of eight horses behind him, includ- 
ing Le Nord (4yrs., 8st. 21b.) and Reverend (3yrs., 8st. r21b.). Amphion then went 
to the Royal Stud at Bushey Paddocks, where he begat, in 1892 (liis first season), 
Amphora and Rampion, both good winners ; and since then his winning stock has 
been — Altesse, Dieudonn*' (winner of the Imperial Produce Stakes of 2,943sovs., and 
the Middle Park Plate of 2,505sovs.), Fiona, Helen Crag, King of Thebes, Sonatina, 
and Tears of Joy.

AUGHRIM. 

(the property of MR. PORTER PORTER, JAMESTOWN, BALLINAMALLAED, 
CO. FERMANAGH, IRELAND.) 

^Yill he located during 1898 and the following Seasons at Hill Green, Stud Farm, Pease- 
more, Newbury, Berks, ichere lie icill be let to a limited nvmber of approved mares at 
BOgs. each mare, and \0s. to the Groom. Application to be made, as above, to Mr. M, 
Butcher, or to 3Ir. J. M. Peace, Lambourne, Berks. 

AuQHRiM, by Xenophon, was bred in 1883 by Lieut. -Colonel Lloyd, at Ballyleck,. 
County Monagban, Ireland, and is tbe second produce of Lashaway (also dam of 
Coolshannagh by Sir Bevys, Iiass of Derry by Geologist, Bail by Baliol, etc.), by 
Uncas, bred in 1876 by Captain Gubbins at the Knockany Stud, County Limerick. 
He is a dark mottled bay, with black points, the only white being a small star in. 
his forehead ; and his height is 15 hands 3in., while he girths Gft. lin., and 
measures 9in. below the knee, being sufficiently powerful to carry 14st. to 
hounds. In appearance he much resembles his distinguished relative Barcaldine, 
being equally lengthy, and possessing all his power and quality, while he 
stands on the shortest and best of well-formed legs and feet. Aughrim 
was put in training at the Curragh early in 1885, and ran his first race 
the same year at the Irish Metropolitan Meeting in September, for the 
Baldoyle Plate (5 furlongs), won by Mr. Linde"s chestnut colt Mulberry by Arbi- 
trator, beating Black Rose (second), Hetty (third), and seven others besides 
Aughrim, who finished close up. This promising youngster made his second 
appearance at the Curragh October Meeting, when, carrying 7st., he won the 
Nursery Handicap of 126 sovs., from the Anglesey Post (0 furlongs), beating Black 
Witch, Gst. 71b. (second), Dictator, 7st. 31b. (third), and six others, including Con- 
servator by Arbitrator (winner of the National Produce Stakes), Decider, Lakefield,. 
etc. ; and next day he ran his third and last race that season, when, in company 
with The Chicken, 3yrs., St. Kevin, 3yrs., Wild Sherry, 3yrs., and Ben Bolt, 4yrs.,. 
he was defeated by Wavelet for the Lord Lieutenant's Plate (one mile and a half). 
In 1886 Aughrim was put in training at Newmarket, under the care of Hopper, 
where he was thought so much of that on being sent to the Liverpool Spring Meet- 
ing for the Prince of Wales Handicap (6 furlongs), he started second favourite for 
that valuable prize, which fell to the favourite Brighton, with Satchel second, and 
Cormeille third, while among those beaten in company with Aughrim were Energy, 
Kaunitz, Aveline, Gannet, Ordovix, and five others. Aughrim then took his leisure 
until Ascot, when he formed one of a field of nineteen runners for the Wokingham 
Stakes, won by the Duchess of Montrose's Loved One by See Saw, 3yrs., 7st., to 
whom Aughrim was giving 21b. On returning to Newmarket Aughrim, always 
tricky at exercise, threw his boy, and getting away so hurt himself that he ran no 
more during the season. Nor, indeed, did he ever start again, for though tried 
early in the following year to be good enough to win the Lincolnshire Handicap, 
for which he was heavily backed by the adherents of Hopper's stable, a like 
accident befell him a month prior to the race, from the effects of which he was 
precluded from running or being ever subsequently trained. It will be seen on 
reference to the pedigree of Aughrim that he is remarkably in-bred to Waxy, 
having in him on the side of his sire Xenophon five strains of that celebrity, and 
no fewer than fourteen on that of his dam Lashaway ; and, like Isonomy, he has in 
him four strains of Sir Hercules, while of Touchstone he has three strains, and four 
of Blacklock, a fact that, irrespective of the many other fine strains-of blood in him, 
ought to insure his being a successful sire. At the Newmarket July Sales in 1894, 
two of his yearlings were greatly admired for their fine size, bone, and quality, but 
only one, the colt out of Clonavarin, reached the reserve put on him, and was sold 
for 350gs. This was Count Schomberg, winner of the Chester Cup, the Queen's 
Vase at Ascot, the Goodwood Cup for the second time in succession, besides several 
other races, and who was sold at the December sales in 1897 for 5,050gs. Aughrim 
is also sire of Up Guards and Polly Duck — both winners.

AVINGTON. 

(the PRorEKTY OF THE RT. HON. LORD HASTINGS, MELTON CONSTABLE, NORFOLK.) 
Will Ic located during 1898 and followiyig Seasons at the Melton Constable Stud Farm, 
Norfolk, ichere he will cover a limited number of approved mares (besides a few of Ms 
ou->'ier's) at 2'lgs., and Isor. to the Groom. Aj'plication to he made to Mr. R. Owen 
Goddard, Sccretari/s Ojfice, as above. 
AviNGTON, by Melton (winner of the Derby, St. Leger, etc.), was bred in 1890 by 
Sir William Throckmorton, Bart., and is the eighth produce of his dam Annette 
(also dam of Anlace and Annamite by Tomahawk, Albertine by Albert Victor, 
Ardington by Melton, Arcano by Mask, etc.) by The Speaker, bred in 1874 by 
Major Carlyon. He is a bay, with black points, standing 16 hands 1 inch, of great 
power and quality, and with excellent bone and good open feet. Avington, being 
an overgrown youngster, was not put in training until late in 1892, and only ran 
once as a two-year-old — viz., in the Montefiore Stakes (G fur.) at the Gat wick 
October Meeting, when, in a field of four runners, he was third to Mr. Abington's 
Porridge, who beat Bumptious by a neck, another two-year-old, Affluence, being last. 
In 1893 Avington, trained by Chandler, ran in five races, two of which he won. 
His first appearance was at Northampton, in the Spencer Plate, for which he ran 
unplaced to Simon Renard (4yrs.), who was giving him only 81b. for the year ; his 
second effort was made at Portsmouth for the Havant Maiden Plate of lOOsovs., 
which, with R. Chaloner on his back, he won easily from Mist, Quandary, and five 
others, the betting being 15 to 8 on him. Avington next flew at higher quarry, as 
he was one of a field of sixteen horses that contested the Wokingham Stakes on the 
last day of the Royal Meeting, for which, though defeated, he ran a close third to 
Pitcher and St. Columba, being only beaten a head for second honours ; and again 
at Brighton he showed excellent form by running Simonian to a neck for the 
Brighton Cup. Avington's best three-year-old form was, however, shown at 
Kempton Park, where he achieved a very easy \4ctory for the London Breeders' 
Foal Stakes of l,l80sovs., beating Worcester, Queen of the Spring, Evermore, and 
three others. In 1894 Avington commenced his four-year-old campaign at the 
Kempton Park Spring Meeting, where, ridden by Calder and carrying 8st. lib., he 
achieved a great and very decisive victory over nineteen opponents for the Great 
" Jubilee " Stakes of 2,050sovs., as he beat Prisoner (4yrs., 8st. lib.), the sturdy son 
of Isonomy, by three lengths, El Diablo (5yrs., 7st. 121b.) being third, beaten a head 
only, while Skirpenbeck (3yrs., (Jst. 91b.) was fourth, beaten a head. Siffleuse (4yrs., 
7st. 101b.)— winner of the One Thousand— and Llanthony (5yrs., 7st. 101b.), 
though pronounced favourites, never showed in the race, and as the remainder of 
the field comprised the best milers of the day, the victory was unquestionably a 
great one, and will be long remembered by those who had the pleasure of witnessing 
it. But a' still greater performance came next (at the Royal Meeting), for Avington 
carried 9st. 21b. into the second place for the Royal Hunt Cup, beaten only half a 
length by Victor Wild (4yrs., 7st. 71b.), j\Iaunday Money (3yrs., 7st. 21b.) being 
third, and Pitcher (4yrs., 7st. 71b.) fourth, with twenty others scattered all over the 
course. After such a display of superiority it caused Avington but little trouble to 
beat Go Lightly for the Diamond Stakes at Gatwick, or Clwyd for the Brighton 
Cup ; but for the Duke of York Stakes at Kempton Park in the Autumn, for 
which he was burdened with 9st. 71b., after running a great horse, he was beaten 
into the third place by St. Florian (3yrs., 7st.) and Athol (5yrs., 7st. lib.), while 
among the fifteen horses behind him were Victor Wild (4yrs., 8st. 91b.), and Throstle 
(3yrs., 8st. 91b.). In the Selection Stakes at Sandown Park he was opposed by Best 
Man, and again by Throstle, whom he disposed of as readily as at Kempton Park, 
but -Best Man beat him by half a length ; and for the Liverpool Autumn Cup, 
carrying 9st. 71b., he had likewise to be content with second place to Son of a Gun 
(4yrs.), carrying only 8st. 41b. In 1895 once more did Avington try to carry Sir 
William Throckmorton's colours to the front at Kempton Park for the Great 
" Jubilee " Stakes, but, burdened with 9st. 61b., it was no wonder he was compelled 
to succumb to the lighter weighted ones— Victor Wild (5yrs., 8st. 41b.), Grey Leg 
(4yrs., 8st. 31b.), El Diablo (6yrs., 7st. 121b.), Portmarnock (3yrs., 6st. 131b.), and 
Fealar (5yrs., 6st. 91b.)— who 'comprised the five placed horses of the eighteen 
runners in that great contest. Avington was then, with great discretion, withdrawn 
from the racecourse, as sound as the day he first started, in order that his powers 
might be reserved for the stud, where he is bound to perpetuate his own fame and 
that of his sire Melton, whose deportation to Italy was a mistake, as shown by the 
high form possessed by Avington, as well as by his great contemporary. Best Man.

AYRSHIRE. 

(the property of his grace the duke of PORTLAND, WELBECK ABBEY, 

worksopO 

Will le located during 189S and following Seasons at Egerton House, NeKmarket, where 
he will be let to a limited 7iumber of a2}2}roved mares {besides a few of his owner's) at 
150^5. each mare, and 1 guinea to the Groom. A2}jflication to be made to Mr. R. Marsh, 
Egerton House, or T. Warner Turner, Esq., Welbeck, Worksop. 

Ayrshire, by Hampton, was bred in 1885 by His Grace the Duke of Portland, and 
is the second produce of his dam Atalanta (also dam of Flying Footstep by Don- 
caster, Melanion by Hermit, etc.) by Galopin, bred in 1878 by Lord Eosslyn. He is 
a rich bay, with star. His height is 16 hands, girth 6ft. 4in., while he measures 8f in. 
below the knee, and is a horse of fine substance, power, and quality. Ayrshire 
commenced his turf career at Manchester in 1887, where, with his powers yet 
undeveloped, he ran a good third to Briar-root by Springfield and Caerlaverock by 
Isonomy for the Whitsuntide Plate ; while in his second essay at Ascot he held the 
same unenviable place behind Friar's Balsam by Hermit and Seabreeze by Isonomy 
for the New Stakes. Ayrshire's subsequent two-year-old performances were a suc- 
cession of remarkable victories. At Stockbridge, with 11 to 10 against him, he beat 
Challenge and Irgunder in a canter for the Bibury Club Home-bred Foal Stakes ; 
and next, with 6 to 4 against him, he easily defeated Hark, Toscano, and four others 
at Windsor for the Royal Plate, worth l,3'25sovs. At the Newmarket July meeting 
Ayrshire was backed at evens against five opponents for the Chesterfield Stakes, 
worth 780sovs., which he easily appropriated from Bartizan, Winkfield (brother to 
Morion), Simon Pure, and Disappointment. At Goodwood 5 to 2 was betted on 
him for the rich Prince of Wales' Stakes of 3,000sovs., which he won in a canter 
from Simon Pure, Juggler, and three others ; while at Doncaster he won the 
Champagne Stakes by two lengths from Marmiton, Caerlaverock, Crowberry, and 
three others, thus when two years old carrying off five of the seven races in which 
he was engaged. In 1888 Ayrshire won four of the six races in which he was 
engaged— viz., the Riddlesworth, the Two Thousand, the Derby, and the Tenth 
Great Foal Stakes at Newmarket. For the Riddlesworth, 8 to 1 was betted on 
him against his solitary opponent, Disappointment, when he beat by twenty lengths ; 
while for the Two Thousand, worth 3,550sovs., 8 to 1 was betted against him, and 
yet he won it easily from his stable companion Johnny Morgan, Orbit, Crowberry, 
Friar's Balsam, and Ossory. For the Derby, worth 3,G80sovs., 6 to 5 was betted on 
him, and he very easily secured that coveted prize from Crowberry (second), Van 
Diemens Land (third), Chillington, Galore, Gautby, Orbit, Netheravon, and Simon 
Pure. At Doncaster he ran unplaced to Seabreeze for the St. Leger, and she 
again beat him for the Lancashire Plate at Manchester; but he wound up the 
season well at Newmarket by beating Grafton, Surbiton, Queen's Counsel, Ossory, 
Caerlaverock, and two others, for the Great Foal Stakes of l,055sovs. In 1889 
Ayrshire took his revenge on Seabreeze by beating her, Melanion, Wishing Gate, 
Friar's Balsam, Baron, and Royal Star for the Kempton Park Royal Stakes of 
9,600sovs. ; while at Sandown Park he won the Eclipse Stakes of ll,lGOsovs. easily 
from El Dorado, Seclusion, Seabreeze, Gold, and Benburb. At the Newmarket 
Second October Meeting Ayrshire ran for the Champion Stakes, for which he was 
unaccountably defeated by Gold, and with this race terminated the wonderfully 
successful turf career of this fine son of Hampton, having won in his short but 
brilliant turf career eleven races, worth 35,915sovs. In 1890 Ayrshire was put to the 
stud, and is already the sire of many winners, including Ariette, Adderley, Galston, 
Glengarry, Glenlogan, Amberite, Airs and Graces, Ardershir, Ardwell, Ayah, 
Dunlop, Heir Male, Hendersyde, Kilkerran, Kitty Grey, Mauchline, Orzil, Oyster- 
catcher, Paladore, Sarchedon, Stewarton, Symmington, Zina, etc.

THE HORSE-BREEDERS' HANDBOOK. 



BEND OR. 

(the property of his grace the duke of WESTMINSTER, EATON, CHESTER.) 

Will ie located during 189S and following Seasons at Eaton, Chester, ivhere he loill he 
let to a few approved mares at 200gs. each, and 1 Guinea to the Groom. Application 
to he made to the Stud Groom, Mr. Richard Chapman. 

Bend Or, by Doncaster (winner of the Derby, Ascot Gold Cup, and Goodwood 
Cup, 1873), was bred in 1877 by His Grace the Duke of Westminster, and is the 
eighth jiroduce of Rouge Eose (also dam of Blood Red by Lord Lyon, and Rose 
of York by Speculum, etc.) by Thormanby, bred in 1865 by General Pearson. He 
is a chestnut horse with blaze face, 16 hands 1 inch high, girth 6 feet 2 inches, and 
he measui-es 8| inches below the knee. The most striking impression formed of 
Bend Or is the remarkable consistency of his formation. He is of nice length, his 
shoulders well placed, strong, muscular, and beautifully moulded at their points ; 
while his chest is of the proper width and fulness, with a light yet muscular neck 
of nice length, and a particularly well set-on head of sufficient breadth between 
the eyes, Avhich are promin ent, with nice-sized ears well pricked. His quarters are 
strong and lengthy from his hocks to his hips, which run so well into his body that 
there is no more than room for a saddle on his back ; while he has large well- 
formed hocks, big knees, and nice-sized, well-shaped feet, being in fact very like 
his sire, Doncaster, who is the true type of an English thoroughbred horse. His 
first appearance on a racecourse was, when two years old, at Newmarket, in July 
1879, for the Chesterfield Stakes, for which he easily defeated ten opponents, 
including Petal (second), Dora (third), Pappoose, The Song, Austin Friar, Li Bounds, 
Chanoine, and The Proctor. The same month, at Goodwood, he Avon the Richmond 
Stakes (value l,762sovs.) from the Colt by Adventurer — Cantiniere, Dora, and four 
others; and the day following won the Prince of Wales's Stakes (value l,34:0sovs.) 
from eight opponents, including Brotherhood (second), and Gil Bias (third). In the 
Triennial at Newmarket he defeated The Song, Fire King, and eight others easily ; 
and at the same Meeting he beat Cannie Chiel, Dora, and seven others for the Rous 
Memorial Stakes ; thus remaining unvanquished throughout his two-year-old career. 
In 1880 Bend Or started a hot favourite for the Derby at 2 to 1 in a field of nine- 
teen, and won, after one of the severest struggles on record, by a head from Robert 
the Devil, with Mask third, and Apollo fourth, while among the beaten horses 
were Zealot, Muncaster, Cylinder, Mariner, Proctor, Ercildoune, Valentino, etc. 
Bend Or next ran at Ascot, where he won the St. James's Palace Stakes from 
Fernandez, with Apollo, Prince Palatine, Colt by Favonius, and Red Ribbon beaten 
off". For the St. Leger Bend Or again started a warm favourite, 11 to 8 being betted 
on him, but he failed to get nearer than sixth to his old opponent Robert the Devil, 
his easy defeat occasioning much surprise. But his next contest for the Great Foal 
Stakes at Newmarket, showed that he had nearly returned to his Derby form, as 
he ran Robert the Devil to a head. A fortnight later, in the Champagne Stakes, 
Bend Or was again defeated by Robei't the Devil, the pace being so severe that both 
Reveller and Charibert were lieaten a long way. But the relative merits of these 
great rivals still formed the great subject of discussion in sporting circles during 
the ofi"-season. Previous to their next and last meeting, however. Bend Or added 
another great victory to his record, viz., at the Epsom Spring Meeting (1881), where 
carrying 9st. in a field of twenty-four horses, he won the City and Suburban by a 
length and a half from Foxhall, 3yrs., 6st. 71b. (second), and Post Obit, 4yrs., 7st. 
(third). Bend Or then encountered his old antagonist, Robert the Devil, for the 
Epsom Gold Cup, one mile and a half (even weights), run for in the Derby week, 
when the betting was 6 to 4 on his opponent ; but, after a rattling race, Bend Or 
succeeded in " turning the tables" on that great horse by a neck. Bend Or next 
won the Champion Stakes at Newmarket from Scobell, Iroquois, and five others ; 
but in the Houghton Week he suftered-a reverse, when, carrying 9st. 81b. in a field 
of thirty-two horses, he started a warm favourite for the Cambridgeshire, won by 
Foxhall, Byrs., 9st. Bend Or was then relegated to the stud at Eaton, where, 
besides Ormonde, he is already the sire of many winners, including Aureoline, 
Cecil, Fleur de Lys, Golden Fleece, Grecian Bend, Gulbeyaz, Mont d'Or, Ilotto, 
Orbit, Ormuz, Ossory, Polydor, Rydal, Medora, Bonavista (winner of the Two 
Thousand), Golden Garter," Gold Reef, Martagon, Orion, Orvieto, The Prize, etc., 
■who among them have won 285 races of the value of £129,148. In Weatherby's 
Supplement to the "Stud Book" for 1897 Bend Or is returned as the sire 
of fourteen foals (now yearlings) — eleven colts and three fillies, all of whom 
are living.

THE HORSE-BREEDERS' HANDBOOK. 



BENVENUTO. 

(the property of J. S. CURTIS, ESQ., LEESBURG, VIRGINIA, U.S.A.). 

Will he located during the Season of 1898 at Mayjield Stud Farm, near Leeshxirg, wliere 
he will serve a limited numher of approved mares (besides a few of Ids owner's) at 
$100 each mare. Apj)lication to be made to the Manager, Mayjield St7id Farm, 
P.O. Box 31, Leesbury, Virginia, U.S.A. 

"Benvenuto, by Galopin, out of Queen of Diamonds by King of Trumps, was bred 
by Lord Feversham in 1888. He is a brown horse, something over 15 hands Sin. 
in height, with a short back, excellent loins, and unblemished legs, while in shape 
he much resembles his sire, Galopin. Benvenuto became the property of Mr. 
Leopold de Rothschild, and made his first and only appearance as a two-year-old 
in the Middle Park Plate in October 1890, for which, carrying 8st. 101b., he was 
beaten by Energy (9st.), Siphonia (8st. 111b.), Orion (9st.), Valauris (8st. 101b.), 
and Orvieto (9st. 31b.), finishing in the order named. His first race as a three- 
year-old was in a maiden three-year-old race of Im. at Sandown Park in April 
1891, in which he finished behind Grand Master, Insurance, and Gay Minstrel, all 
carrying the same weight, 9st. In May, he (carrying 6st. 71b.) ran in the Empress 
Prize Handicap (l:|m.), being beaten in this race by such horses as Bel Demonio 
(4yrs., 8st. lib.), Martagon (4yrs., 8st. 71b.), and Father Confessor (6yrs., 9st. 101b.). 
At Epsom, carrying 8st. 41b., with 100 to 8 betted against him, he won the Grand 
Prize for three-year-olds (about l^m,), beating St. Kilda (8st. 51b., second). 
Ordinance (8st. 31b., third), Flodden Field (Sst. 131b.), Friar Lubin (9st. 31b,), 
Martenhurst (8st. 131b.), Capsicum (8st. 101b.), Conachar (8st. 101b.), Junius 
(8st. 51b.), Kirkstall (Sst. 31b.), and Woolsthorpe (8st. 31b.)— an excellent per- 
formance. At Sandown Park, in the Electric Plate, for three-year-olds (5fur.), 
carrying 9st. 51b., he was beaten by Peter Flower (9st.), and Benvenuto ran also 
in the Peveril of the Peak Plate at Derby, the Sixth Zetland Biennial at York, 
and in the Horley Handicap at the Gat wick October Meeting, but was not placed 
in any of them. When four years old Benvenuto ran three times, his best per- 
formance being, when carrying 9st. 51b., he ran third to Adieu (9st.) and St. Kilda 
(Sst. 101b.) for the Thirty-third Newmarket Biennial (Hm.) at the Craven 
Meeting. This finished Benvenuto's racing career on the flat, but he ran six times 
under National Hunt rules, his best performance over the sticks being when he 
finished third (carrying list. 21b.) to Theosophist (aged, r2st. 71b.), and St. Keran 
(Gyrs., r2st. 21b.), having behind him Beware (4yrs., list. 21b.), Partisan (6yrs., 
13st. 41b.), and three other smart performers across country. Benvenuto was pur- 
chased by Mr. L. E. B. Homan in 1893 and sent to South Africa, where, at 
Johannesburg in August of that year, he ran unplaced in the Stewards' Handicap 
(l^^m.), for which, carrying lOst. 21b., he was beaten by Stockwell (Gyrs., 9st. Sib.), 
Porridge (5yrs., lOst. 21b.) second, and Chanticleer (aged, 9st. 81b.) third. He was 
subsequently sent to Messrs. Robertson &. Homan' s Stud Farm, Colesburg, Cape 
Colony, but while in Africa served only a few thoroughbred mares. He became 
the property of his present owner in 18^5 and was removed to the Orange Free 
State. Benvenuto's two full sisters, Galloping Queen and Queen of the Riding, 
made their mark on the English turf in the colours of Mr. Leopold de Rothschild, 
who is breeding from them at the present time. This horse is most remarkably 
inbred to Blacklock, having no less than 5/;52 of that horse's blood, and if he serves 
suitable mares should produce very high-class galloping stock. Benvenuto is not 
registered in the English "Stud Book." His great-granddam, Red Ribbons, was 
originally in Vol. VIII. of that publication, but as it was found impossible to trace 
the pedigree of her dam, Maggie Lauder, she (Red Ribbons) was omitted from 
subsequent editions of that invaluable work. It is believed that Maggie Lauder 
was thoroughbred, but as she was foaled nearly a century ago, no record of her 
dam is extant. The Jockey Club of New York have sanctioned the registration 
of Benvenuto in the American " Stud Book," so that the slight flaw in his pedigi-ee 
will not prevent him from being considered thoroughbred in the United States. 
Benvenuto's winnings in England amounted to £2120.

BEST MAN. 

(the property of WALLACE JOHNSTONE, ESQ., 3, ST. JAMES STREET, 
PICCADILLY, LONDON.) 

Will he, located during 1898 and following Season.t at Hoivhvry Hall, where he will be let 
to twenty-five approvi'd mares (besides afeio of his oivner's) at lOOys. each and 1 guinea 
to the Oroom. Apjdication to be made to Mr. Bohert Pecli. 

Best Max, by Melton (winner of the Derby and St. Leger, 1885, etc.), was bred in 
1890, at Hampton Court, by Her Majesty the Queen, and is the second produce of 
Wedlock (also the dam of Banns by Melton, sent to South America) by Wenlock, 
bred also in 1884 by Her Majesty. He is a rich bay with black points, 15 hands 
3^ inches high, is true shaped, lengthy and racing-like, with plenty of substance 
and superb quality. Purchased at Her Majesty's sale by Mr. John Dawson for 
330gs. Best Man began racing in 1892, when victory attended his very first 
effort at Warwick in the Grove Park Two-year-old Plate of SOOsovs., whieh he 
won easily from Clog-dance, Peephole, and four others, a performance that led to 
his purchase by Mr. Wallace Johnstone on the recommendation of his trainer, John 
Dawson, in whose experienced hands, though beaten in his next four engagements 
— he obtained some notable victories. The first break to his run of ill-fortune 
occurred at Derby, where he carried off the Harrington Stakes of 492sovs. from 
Erin, Allan Ramsay, Glengall, and two others. He was next defeated by Maltravers 
and Rory O'More for the Michaelmas Stakes at Sandown Park ; but in his succeed- 
ing effort at Yarmouth he very easily beat Hawkweed, Gabrielle, and three others, 
after which he wound up the season at Newmarket by a very brilliant victory for 
the Cheveley Stakes, in which, giving Gangway 51b. and Montauvert r21b., he beat 
both, besides four others. In 1893, Best Man, when three years old, also con- 
tended in nine races, four of which he won. Carrying 9st. lib. to William's 8st. 31b., 
he ran third to him for the Harrington Plate at the Newmarket Craven Meeting, and 
later the same week Montezuma defeated him for the Payne Stakes. At Ascot he 
failed to give Glare 291b. for the Fern Hill Stakes ; and at the Newmarket July 
Meeting Conacher beat him for the Soham Plate. At length, in \ September, at 
Sandown Park, Best Man's time came, as he beat Afiiuence, Queen of Navarre, 
Watch Tower, Peppercorn, and Concrete, for the September Stakes of 475sovs. ; 
and he carried off three other races in succession — viz., the Great Eastern Railway 
Handicap of 41osovs., beating Mountain Chief, Sally Brass II., and five others ; the 
Great Tom Stakes of 460sovs. at Lincoln, beating Mark MacGregor, Star and 
Garter, First Flight, Mrs. Butterwick, and seven others ; and, carrying 8st. 41b., 
the Derby Cup of 1(>70 sovs., beating no fewer than twenty-three horses, among 
whom were Harfleur II., 3yrs., 7st. 51b. (second), Raeburn, 3yrs., 9st. (third), Athol, 
4yrs., 7st. 121b. (fourth), Victor Wild, 3yrs., 7st. 31b. (fifth), Soult, 3yrs., 6st. 41b. 
(sixth), etc. In 1894, when four years old. Best Man ran in ten races, no fewer 
than nine of which he won, a brilliant series of victories, almost without a parallel. 
He achieved his first success for the Trial Stakes at Lincoln, carrying lOst. lib., 
beating Tickford Abbot (3yrs., (Ist. 7Ib.) and two others ; after which he failed in 
his attempt to give Macready (oyrs.) 311b. for the Inaugural Handicap at Ling- 
field, which was the only defeat he suffered during the season ; at Kempton Park, 
carrying 9st. 81b., he divided the Queen's Prize of l,000sovs. with Court Ball (3yrs., 
6st.), after a dead heat, beating Oatlands and seven others ; at Epsom he won the 
Craven Stakes of 200sovs. from Irish Car and Trionfi ; at Ascot he won the Trial 
Stakes of 540sovs. from Buckingham and Guiser, and the Queen's Stand Plate of 
360SOVS. from Day Dream II., Orlet, and Queen's Jester ; at Newmarket, the July 
Cup of 300sovs. from Miss Hoydon and Jocasta ; at Sandown Park, the Selection 
Stakes of 850sovs. from Avington and Throstle ; at Newmarket Houghton, the All- 
aged Stakes of 195sovs. from Woolsthorpe ; and then, to crown all, crossing over the 
" silver streak " to Paris, he won the Prix du Conseil Municipal, one mile and a half, 
on the Bois de Boulogne, carrying 9st. 21b., from Callistrate (4yrs., lOst.), Fripon 
(5yrs., 8st. 31b.), and ten others. In 1895 Best Man ran in five races, one of which 
he won, while he was placed second in three others and third in another. For the 
March Stakes at Newmarket he failed to give Whittier 311b., but beat Marco who 
was third ; at Ascot he was second to Lombard for the Rous Memorial Stakes, and 
third to Woolsthorpe and Worcester for the Queen's Stand Plate ; then, carrying 
9st. he was second to Marco (3yrs., 7st. 9Ib.) for the Cambridgeshire, and on the 
last day of the meeting carried 9st. to victory for the Old Cambridgeshire, which 
terminated Best Man's racfng career. For 1897 he has been returned as the sire of 
four colts and five fillies (now yearlings), all exceptionally promising.

15 THE HORSE-BREEDERS' HANDBOOK. 



BLAIRFINDE. 

(the property of MR. JOHN GUBBINS, BRUREE HOUSE, CO. LIMERICK.) 

Will he located during 1898 and following seasons at the Bruree Stud Farm, Bruree, Co. 
Limerick, Ireland, where he will be let to a limited number of approved mares besides 
a few of his owner's at 50gs. each mare and 1 guinea to the Groom. Application to be 
made to Mr. George Armstrong, Stud Groom, as above. There are very few subscrip- 
tioTis left. 

Blairfinde (full brother to Galtee More), by Kendal, was bred in 1891, by Mr. 
John Gubbins, and is the third produce of his dam Morganette (also dam of 
Annette by Mayboy, Marietta by Kendal, and Galtee More also by Kendal), by, 
Springfield, bred in 1884 by Mr. J. H. Houldsworth. He is a rich dark bay horse 
of great power and substance, combined with quality and the most perfect 
symmetry, standing 16 hands 2in. high, gii-thing 6ft. 2in., while he measures 
8|in. below the knee. Blairfinde, owing to an accident, had but a brief career on 
the racecourse. He ran his first race at Portsmouth in August 1893 for a Two- 
Year-Old Maiden Plate of lOOsovs., won by Maid of Cash by St. Honorat, in which, 
with seven others, he failed to get a situation, the second and third places being 
filled by Rohilla by Baldur and Whaddon Chase by Selby ; nor was he more for- 
tunate in his second attempt, for being very backward in condition he could only 
run fourth to Ranald McEagh by Child of the Mist, in a field of six runners for 
the Bulbrook Stakes (5fur.) at the Warwick November Meeting, and, in fact, he 
was merely started at these meetings to show him his future business. Having 
wintered well Blairfinde came out in very different form in 1894, and being sent to 
the Curragh to fulfil his engagement in the Irish Derby, he started joint favourite 
with Mr. H. E. Linde's Ball Coote at 2 to 1 each, and he won that race, which was 
worth TOOsovs., by ten lengths, from Hartstown (second), Hebron (third). Gazetteer 
(fourth), and six others. The result of the Irish Derby presaged a great future 
for Blairfinde, but, unhappily, he hit his leg in that race, and Mr. Darling, who 
believes him to have been every bit as good as Galtee More, found it impossible to 
train him subsequently.

BLUE GREEN. 

(the property of R. SNEYD, ESQ., KEELE PARK, NEWCASTLE, STAFFS.) 

Will he located during 1898 and the following Seasons at the Keele Stud, near Newcastle, 
Staffs., where he will cover a limited number of approved mares (besides a few of his 
owner's) at 48sors. each mare, and \sov, to the Groom. Applications to be made 
to Mr. H. V, Boothby, at the Keele Estate Office, as above. 

Blue Green, by Coeruleus, was bred in 1887 by Mr. "W. Taylor- Sharpe, and is the 
third produce of Angelica (also dam of Dingle by Glendale, Mezzotint by Coeruleus, 
Orme by Ormonde, etc.) by Galopin, bred in 1879 by Prince Batthyany. He i-s 
a good brown, with star and snip, standing 16 j hands high, girths 6ft. 4in., 
measures 8^in, below the knee, and is a horse of fine power and great quality. 
Blue Green's career on the turf was a rather chequered one, a fact not surprising, 
considering that he ran in no fewer than nineteen races — of which he won five, 
was placed second in seven events, and third in four others. When two years old, 
in 1889, he ran at Ascot, unplaced to Keythorpe for the Thirty-seventh Triennial ; 
was third to Riviera and Keythorpe for the Hurstbourne Stakes at Stockbridge ; 
was second to Margarine for the Prince of Wales' Stakes at York, having behind 
him Tostig, Odd Fellow, Reve d'Or, and eleven others ; won the Criterion Stakes 
of 72Gsovs. at Newmarket easily, beating Flibustier, Royal Robe II., and Keythorpe ; 
and ran a dead heat with Vermilion for the Houghton Stakes at Newmarket, the 
other runners comprising Lusignan, Carabineer, Circassian, Jungfrau, and Gryllus. 
In 1890, when three years old, Blue Green ran third to Surefoot and Le Nord for 
the Two Thousand ; second to Memoir for the Newmarket Stakes and the Payne 
Stakes. At Ascot he was second to AUoway for the Prince of Wales' Stakes ; and 
won the Triennial Stakes of 579sovs. from Grand Prior and Fontainbleau. At 
Doncaster he was second to Memoir for the St. Leger ; and at Newmarket second 
to Morion for the Great Foal Stakes ; third to Amphion and Memoir for the 
Champion Stakes ; and third to St. Serf and Martagon for the Three Year Old 
Free Handicap. When four years old, in 1891, Blue Green won the Lowther Stakes 
of l,100sovs. (Im. 2fur.) at the Newmarket Second October Meeting, beating 
Cuttlestone (second). Reverend (third), Cereza, Father Confessor, and Henry VIII. 
in a canter by four lengths ; and in the Houghton week, carrying 8st. r2Ib., ran 
unplaced for the Cambridgeshire won by Comedy by Ben Battle (3yrs., 7st. 31b.) ; 
in 1892, when five years old. Blue Green won the Alexandra Plate of l,000sovs. at 
Ascot, beating Bracken and Houndsditch ; carrying lOst. 51b., was fourth to 
Versailles (3yrs., 7st. 121b.), Nunthorpe, and Kyle for the Dullingham Plate at 
Newmarket ; and he next ran second to Martagon, beaten by a neck only, for the 
Ooodwood Cup, which terminated the extraordinary turf career of Blue Green, who 
retired from the turf to the stud as sound and as well as the day he first started. 
In the several races above recounted. Blue Green was the property of the Duke of 
Westminster, and he stood during his first season at Eaton, where he covered S'ix 
or seven of his Grace's best mares, who in the following year sold him to Mr. R. 
Sneyd for £4,000, and he is now first lord of the harem at the Keele Stud, 
Staffordshire. Blue Green is already the sire of seven winners — namely, Arc-en- 
Ciel, Blue Water, Blue Smoke, Brooch, Hydrangea, and True Blue, who among 
them won twelve races worth 4,02ysovs. The "Stud Book" return for 1897 
credits him with being the sire of seven colts and eight fillies (now yearlings), 
besides one dead foal.

BRAG. 

(the property of LEOPOLD DE ROTHSCHILD, ESQ., ASCOTT, BUCKINGHAMSHIRE.)' 

Will le located dnnng 1898 and ensuing Seasons at Sovthcourt Stud Farm, Leighton 
Buzzard, lohere he ivill be let to a few ajyproved mares at iOgs. each, and 1 guinea to 
the Groom. Applications to be made, as above, to Mr. E, Boroughs, Stud Groom. 

Brag, by Struan, was bred in 1878 by Mr. T. Lant, and is the fifth produce of 
Bounce by Flatterer, bred in 1868 by Mr. Hilton. He is a light chestnut, with 
blaze face and a white stocking on his ofF-hind leg. His height is 16 hands 2 inches, 
girth 6 feet 6 inches, and measures 8^ inches below the knee, being a horse of great 
power as well as quality. Brag ran his first race in 1880, when two years old, at 
the Newmarket September Meeting, when he was unplaced for the Granby Stakes, 
6 furlongs, won by Bookmaker ; but his next essay at the October Meeting following 
was successful, as he won a plate of 167gs., five furlongs, from seven opponents, 
including Mynheer and Favorita. This easy victory doubtless caused Brag to start 
a hot favourite, at 5 to 2, for the Criterion Stakes a few weeks later, in which he 
finished fifth to Thebais, Savoyard (second). Sir Marmaduke (third), and Leon 
(fourth) ; but at the same Meeting, starting a rank outsider in a field of ten for 
the Dewhurst Plate, he ran Bal Gal to a short neck, having Lucy Glitters, St. 
Louis, and Fiddler behind him. In 1881 Brag ran in four races, two of which he 
won ; viz., the Cleveland Welter Handicap at Shrewsbury, defeating cleverly 
Beatus (second), Tower and Sword (third), and seven others, including Chevronel 
and Exile II. ; and his next victory was achieved at the Manchester November 
Meeting, where, carrying 7st. 41b., he won the Lancashire Cup from Edensor, 
3yrs., 7st. 91b. (second), Helicon, 3yrs., 7st. 2lb., and ten others, among whom were 
Valour, Sibyl, Essayez, Shinglass, Atalanta, etc. In 1882 Brag's first appear- 
ance was at the Manchester May Meeting in the Salford Borough Handicap, for 
which Toastmaster beat him ; and his next effort was made in the Royal Hunt 
Cup at Ascot, won by Sweetbread, 3yrs., 6st. 41b., who was the favourite, and won 
easily. Nor were his two other attempts as a four-year-old successful, beyond 
securing third place, carrying lOst. 91b, in a Welter Handicap behind Minster, 
5yrs., 9st., and Foreshore, 3yrs., 8st. 131b. In 1883, when 5yr3. old. Brag ran in 
twenty races, seven of which he won, while in several others he was placed. His 
first success was for the Bretby Plate at Newmarket, in which he beat Florence 
and John Ridd ; and this he followed up by winning a Handicap on the Six Furlong 
Course, in which he gave Rout 2st. beating, besides several other flyers. At the 
Newmarket April Meeting, he defeated John Ridd and Dean Swift for the AprU. 
Handicap, and his next winning race was a Match for £200 aside, in which he beat 
Reputation by a neck. Next followed five defeats, in three of which he was 
placed. Then came an excellent performance at Brighton, where he won the 
Ovingdean Welter Handicap, giving Ramsbury 1st. 111b., the same to Winterbourne, 
and 2st. 91b. to Saucy Boy, while three others were beaten off". This race he won 
by five lengths. At the Newmarket Houghton Meeting Brag took the Houghton 
Handicap from Prism, Bolero, and Auctioneer, giving the first-named 131b., a 
great performance ; and later in the month he beat Geheimniss and Glen Albyn 
for the Brighton Autunm Cup. This race he won also by five lengths in a canter. 
At the end of November, carrying 9st. 21b., he was defeated by Keir, 3yrs., 
7st. 121b., for the Lancashire Cup, which terminated his arduous labours for the 
year. In 1884, Brag contended in nine races, two of which he won, viz., the Whit- 
svmtide Cup at Kempton Park, when he gave Dalmeny 181b., and Corunna 301b.,, 
while eight others were beaten off; and the Stewards' Cup at Brighton, for which 
he carried lOst. 121b., beating Glasgow, 5yrs., 8st. 121b., Modred, 4yrs., 8st. 81b., 
and five others. In 1885 he again won the Brighton Cup from Criterion, Toast- 
master, Quilt and Constance, which was the last victory gained by this sterling, 
honest horse, who at the stud has already greatly distinguished himself, as from the 
few mares put to him he is the sire of Bumptious, Douglas Campbell, Gouma, 
Rodomont, Attar, Braggart, Bragmardo, Brigg, Froward, Gulistan, Miss Cackle, 
Tonquin, Sanglamore, Starch, and the filly out of Cipoletta, who have among them 
won thirty-three races of the value of £14,097. In 1897 Brag is credited with being 
the sire of eleven foals (now yearlings) — five colts and six fillies, one of the former 
of which is dead and two fillies.

BREAD KNIFE. 

(the property of JOHN ROBIXSON, ESQ., WORKSOP MANOR, WORKSOP.) 

Will ie located during 1898 and following Seasonx, at Worksop Manor Stud (1 mile from 
Worksop'), loliere he ivill be let to a limited number of approved mares at 25gs. each, 
and 1 guinea to the Groovi. Application to be made to the Stud Groom, as above 
Xo maiden mares taken to this horse. 

Bread Knife, by Craig Millar (winner of the St. Leger), was bred in 1883 by- 
Mr. Hume Webster, at Marden Deer Park, and is the fourth produce of Slice by 
Brown Bread, bred by Mr. John Eyke, in 1873. He is a good bay with black 
points, and a star the size of a sixpence on his forehead. His height is 16h. lin.^ 
with immense girth, and he measures 8Ain. below the knee. His head is full of 
intelligence, with a prominent eye and wide nostrils, while he has a beau- 
tiful rein, well-placed shoulders, a strong back and beautifully turned quarters. 
Bread Knife made his dehut at the Manchester WTiitsuntide Meeting, 1885, in 
the John o'Gaunt Plate, for which he tried ineffectually to lower the colours 
of The Bard, but ran him so close a race that it became at once evident that 
there was a great future before him. Nor was it long until he justified that opinion,. 
Eor at the Redcar Summer Meeting Bread Knife won the Wilton Plate of 495sovs. 
easily, by four lengths, from Greyfriars (second), Toto, and seven others. He is 
next found running in the Midlands at Four Oaks Park, where, ridden by Fagan, 
he carried 8st. 121b. to victory for the Beaufort Nursery Plate of 750sovs., 
Deating Craig North, 7st. 131b. (second), Yenetia, 7st. (third), and ten others, 
including Braw Lass, Going Away, Lowdown, Vivacious, etc. On his return to 
che north. Bread Knife woimd up the year successfully at Doncaster by winning 
rhe Clumber Plate of 197sov3. in a canter, by ten lengths, from Twinkle, 2yrs., 
:o whom he was giving 181b., and six others. In 1880, Bread Knife's racing 
nivTeer was suddenly cut short at Lincoln, for after carrying Gst. 111b. (a telling 
Height on a three-year-old so early in the year) into the second place behind 
y'ulmen, 6yrs., 7st. 131b., for the Lincolnshire Handicap, in which he had behind 
him. Cohort, Cyrs., 7st. 41b. (third), Phoebus, 3yrs., 5st. 101b. (fourth). Lonely, 
4yrs., 7st. 101b. (fifth). Royal Hampton, 4yrs., 8st. (sixth), and 18 others, it was. 
found that he had hit his leg, and he never ran subsequently. Craig Millar 
having been deported to the Continent, Bread Knife will make a worthy representa- 
tive in England at the stud of the St. Leger winner of 1875. And this prophecy, 
made in 1890, Bread Knife has already fulfilled, as he is the sire of Bonny Kate, 
Cardrona, CoUina, Collessie, Eblana, Fruit Knife, The Humber, Infula, Red Wheat, 
Self-Sacrifice, and Vinolia, all winners ; besides Aloof, The Baker, Blunt, Bonny 
Blade, Carnatum, Imbroglio, Knife Boy, Miss Beauty, Queen Cake, Remember 
Me, Royal Blade, Simnel Loaf, and Slice of Luck, who in 1897 won twenty- three 
races worth £4,781.

Old Stakes at Newmarket, which he won easily from Gavotte, Versifier, Munster, 
and three others ; and at the Second Spring Meeting he was second to Peter Flower 
for the Bedford Stakes. At Manchester he won the Breeders' Foal Stakes of 
l,600sovs., beating Sir Frederick Roberts, Rousseau, and eleven others, among 
whom were Friar Lubin, Infula, and St. David ; and at Epsom Spring Meeting 
the Stanley Stakes of 496sovs. fell to him, beating Inverness, March Past, and 
Polly Eccles. At Ascot he won both his engagements easily, beating Conifer, 
Reverend, Guardian, and Santa Glaus, for the Fern Hill Stakes ; and Noble 
Chieftain, Swift, Mephisto, and Maxim, for the Queen's Stand Plate. At the New- 
market July Meeting he was second to Mephisto for the Bottisham Plate ; at the 
same meeting he won the Plantation Stakes, beating Conacher, Dorothy Vernon, 
and six others. At Derby he ran second to Gone Coon and Springtime for the 
Champion Breeders' Stakes ; and at Doncaster was second to Marvel for the Brad- 
gate Park Stakes ; while he wound up his two-year-old performances by running a 
dead heat with Retribution for the Cheveley Stakes at Newmarket. In 1891, when 
three years old. Bumptious ran in eight races, five of which he won — viz., the Fern 
Hill Stakes at Ascot, beating Lorette, Lady Hermit, and five others ; the Ascot 
Biennial, beating Flodden Field, Jessamy, and three others; at Kempton Park 
he won the City of London Foal Stakes of l,179sovs., beating Orion, Balmoral, 
Spring Time, Lady Primrose, and Heroic ; the Select Stakes at Newmarket First 
October Meeting, beating Melody, Queen of the Fairies, and Broad Corrie ; and 
the All-Aged Stakes at the Newmarket Second October Meeting, beating Peter 
Flower and Lady Caroline. These are the chief performances of Bumptious, 
who, in all his races, displayed speed of the highest order, an attribute so 
necessary in these sprint-racing days, that he is bound to soon have a full sub- 
scription list ; as is his sire Brag also, from the success of his stock during the 
racing season 1-89C.

CABIN BOY. 

(the property of JOHN M. HANBURY, ESQ., COMPTON VERNEY, KINETON.) 

Will he located during 1898 andthefolloiving Seasons at the Compton Verjiey Stvd, Kineton,. 
Warwickshire, where he will be strictly limited to thirty approved mares (besides his 
owners) at 40gs. each, and 1 guinea to the Groom. He will also serve approved 
winners and dams of ivinners gratis. Mares should be sent to Kineton Station (1 mile'). 
Apply to Basil Hanbury, Esq., as above. 

Cabin Boy, by Jack Tar, was bred in 1889 by Mr. J. Cooper, and is the fifth 
produce of Matilda (also dam of The Sikh and Sutley, by Lord Gough, etc.) by 
Solon, bred in 1874 by Mr. M. Cashman. He is a very handsome brown horse, 
having well-placed muscular shoulders, with fine back, loins, good bone, and strong 
quarters. He stands 16 hands high, girths 6ft. 3^in., and measures 8^in. below the 
knee. Cabin Boy commenced his remarkable racing career in 1891, when two years 
old, at Portsmouth, in the Maiden Two- Year-Old Plate, running second to Hunt- 
ingdon, in a field of sixteen runners, and he altogether ran eight times that season. 
In another field of sixteen for the Maiden Two- Year-Old Plate at Kempton Park, 
he ran Groat to a head, with Navarro third ; and he next defeated six opponents 
for the Kenilworth Maiden Plate at Warwick. At Lincoln Autumn Meeting Cabin 
Boy ran second to Portland ; and was placed, with top weight, in a large field for 
the Grendon Nursery at Warwick, won by May Rose. But it was not until the 
following season, 1892, that Cabin Boy so distinguished himself as to be considered 
almost invincible in certain class contests. He ran in thirteen races, and won no 
fewer than eleven of them. He commenced by running Dunvegan to a neck in a 
field of nineteen for the Fn-st Welter Handicap at the Newmarket April Meeting, 
and his subsequent performances comprised the following unbroken chain of suc- 
cesses — viz., the Castle Mile Stakes at Warwick, in April, for which he defeated the 
Lady Highthorn Colt, and two others in a canter ; the Eaton Plate (Im.), at Chester, 
which he won, carrying 9st. lib., from Faun (3yrs., 8st. 81b.), and Earl of Chester 
(3yrs., 8st. 31b.) ; the Carlton Plate at Manchester (Gfur.), easily beating Zadoc, 
Red Elm, and two others ; the Palace Plate at Alexandra Park, easily beating 
White Star, and Tabret ; a Mile Plate at Newmarket, defeating easily Rioter, 
Orontes, and St. Cicely ; the Surbiton Plate at Hurst Park (Im.), which he won 
easily from Tudor and Wise Eye ; the Palace Plate at Alexandra Park, which he 
won in a canter from Careysville ; and the Henfield Stakes at Brighton, for which 
he beat Opoponax and several others. Formidable as were these achievements of 
Cabin Boy, they were surpassed by his four-year-old performances in 1893, when be 
won ten out of his twelve contests. He began by carrying 9st. 31b. to the fore for 
the Trial Plate at Lincoln, beating six opponents, including Huelva (3yrs., 6st. 71b.), 
Dragon (4yrs., 8st.), and four others. His subsequent victories comprised the Ascott 
Plate at Northampton, carrying lOst. 31b., and beating Medici (3yrs., 7st. 131b.), Tyne 
Lily (7st. 101b.), and Henry VIII. (5yrs., lOst.) ; the Rothschild Plate, for which 
he walked over with list. ; the Club Open Welter at Warwick, beating Belmont, 
Secundus, and Lady Morgan ; a Plate at Newmarket, beating Short Price and San 
Giovanni ; the Londesborough Stakes at York, beating Collina, etc. ; the DuUing- 
ham Plate at Newmarket, when, carrying 9st. 81b., he met some distinguished horses 
and easily beat them — viz., Orvieto (5yrs., lOst. (Ub.), Gamboge (3yrs., 7st. 121b.), 
Simonian (3yrs., 9st. 81b.), and Iconoclast (3yrs., 7st. 121b.) ; and the Golden Handi- 
cap at Gatwick (Im.), value l,6o5sovs., for which, carrying 8st., he defeated Queen 
of the Spring (3yrs., 6st. 21b.), IMountain Chief (3yrs., 6st. 61b.), Workington, Esmond, 
and nine others. When five years old, in 1894, Cabin Boy ran twelve times, carrying 
very high weights, and won the following races — viz., the May Plate at Chester, 
carrying 9st. 4lb., beating Theseus (7st. 71b.), Lord of the Dale (7st. 41b.), and two 
others ; the Compton Welter at Northampton, carrying lOst. 41b., and beating 
Toreador (8st. 51b.), Dulzara, Hawkweed, and Broomsdale ; the Quorndon Plate at 
Derby, carrying 9st. 101b., beating Flare Up (4yrs., 9st. 71b.), Hazlewitch Colt 
(8st. 51b.), and Johnny Morgan (9st. 101b.) ; the Guy Welter Handicap at Warwick, 
carrying list., beating Philology (8st. 111b.), Good Lad (9st. 31b.), Braemar (9st. 41b.), 
Irish Melody (8st. 101b.), Golden Gate (8st. 101b.), and Royal Charter II. (7st. 71b.) ; 
while he most appropriately wound up his performances for the season, as well as 
terminating his turf career, by winning the Final Plate at the IVIanchester November 
Meeting, carrying 9st. 131b., and easily defeating Lottie's Dude, Mowbray, and 
Wensley. Altogether Cabin Boy ran in thirty-eight races, no fewer than twenty- 
nine of which he won — a splendid winning record. His progeny in 1897 comprised 
three colts and nine fillies (now yearlings), all living and exceptionally promising.

Will ie located during 1898 and tJie folloiving SeasoTis at Welbeck, tvhere he loill he let to 
a limited numher of mares {besides a few of his owners'), on special terms, to he known 
of T. Warner Turner, Esq., Welbeek Abbey, Worksop. Carbine's fee is 200gs. 

Carbine, by Musket, was bred in 1885 by the New Zealand Stud Company, at Sylvia 
Park, and is the first produce of Mersey by Knowsley out of Clemence by Newminster, etd. 
He is a bay, 16 hands lin. high, of power and quality, but it is not until seen moving that 
his splendid action and good looks are fully appreciated. Carbine, who was bought when 
a yearling by Mr. J, O'Brien for 620gs., and won no fewer than thirty-three of the forty- 
three races he contested, worth £29,476, commenced his remarkable racing career in 1887, 
when two years old, at the Christchurch Club Meeting, by winning the Hopeful Stakes of 
75sovs. , beating Ravenswing and three others ; and his next appearance was for the Middle 
Park Stakes, which he won by half a length, again beating Ravenswing and seven others.

ing next day Carbine (now the property of Mr. D. S. Wallace who gave 3,000gs. for him), 
carrying 8st. 61b., easily defeated four opponents for the All Aged Stakes, of 400sovs., com- 
prising Nilawe (2yrs., 6st. 7Ib.), Chintz (2yrs., 6st. 91b.), Russley (aged, 9st. lib.), and

8st. 41b.), and eight others ; whilst on the third day, carrying 8st. 21b., for the Cumber- 
land Stakes of 5U0sovs., he again defeated Lochiel (aged, 9st. 41b.) and Abercorn (4yrs., 
9st.). On the fourth day of the A. J. C. Meeting Carbine, carrying 8st., won the Austra- 
lian Jockey plate of l,000sovs. (3ra.), beating five opponents, including Abercorn (4yrs., 
9st.) and Melos (3yrs., 8st.). Carbine was also placed for several other important events 
that season. In 1890 Carbine ran in fourteen races, and won eight — viz., the Flying 
Stakes of 300sovs, at the V. R. C. Spring Meeting, defeating nine opponents, including 
Dreadnought and Wilga ; the Essendon Stakes of 500sovs. at the V. K, C. Autumn Meet-

field of thirty-eight opponents, including Highborn (5yrs., 6st. 81b.), Correze (3yr8., 
7st. 31b.) ; the Spring Stakes (Hm.) of 500sovs. at the A. J. C. Meeting, beating Melos

the British stud, this splendid horse, believed by many to be the best ever foaled, has been 
recently purchased by His Grace the Duke of Portland with that object. Already Carbine

29 THE HORSE-BREEDERS' HANDBOOK: 



CARNAGE. 

(the property op p. c. patton, esq.) 

Will he located during 1898 and following Seasons at the Cohham Stud, Cohliavi, Surrey, 
lohere lie will be let to forty approved mares at 50gs. each, and one guinea to the 
Groom. His suhscrijition loas full in 1896 and 1897, a7id nominations are now being 
taken for 1898 and 1899. Application to be made as above to Mr. Shipley, Stud 
Groom. 

Carnage, by Nordenfeldt, was bred in 1890 (Australian time) by Mr. W. R- 
Wilson, of the St. Albans Stud, and is out of Mersey (also dam of Carbine, etc.) 
by Knowsley, bred in 1874 by the Duke of AA^'estminster. He is a chestnut 
with star and snip, half of near fore pastern and both hind fetlocks white. 
His height is close upon 16 hands, and with perfect truth of conformation, 
he possesses excellent bone and a fine temper. When two years old, Carnage 
contended in five events, two of which he won, while he was placed second 
in two others. His first winning race was the Federal Stakes of SOOsovs. at 
the V.A.T.C, in which he easily defeated ten runners, six furlongs in Imin. 
leasees. ; while at the same Meeting he won the Champagne Stakes of 932sovs., 
six furlongs, also from ten runners in Imin. 19secs. At the V.A.T.C. Autumn 
Meeting he received 60sovs. for running second in the Unplaced Two-year-old 
Stakes, and for running second, carrying 9st., for the Third Biennial Stakes 
at the A.J.C. (N.S.W.), he received 50sovs. In 1894 Carnage contested nine 
races, two of which he placed to his owner's credit, while he ran second on three 
occasions, and was third twice. His winning races included the Victoria Derby 
of l,545sovs., one mile and a half, which he won easily at last by a length and a 
quarter from ten runners in 2min. 39secs. (the fastest time on record) ; and the 
Spring Stakes of 597sovs., one mile and a quarter, at the V.R.C. Meeting, 
whilst carrying 9st. 6lb., he won easily from six runners. Carnage's best race that 
year was, however, taking second honours and l,000sovs., after making all the 
running, in the Melbourne Cup, won by half a length by Tarcoola, in 3min. 30|secs. 
(Carnage being at a disadvantage of iVlb. Aveight for age). The Jeweller, -winner 
of many races, finished close up in front of twenty-six runners. Then for the St. 
Leger Stakes, one mile and three-quarters and 332yds., at the V.K.C. Autumn 
Meeting, Carnage took 200sovs. for running second, beaten a length only by 
Patron ; and no better fortune attended him for the Australian Jockey Club St. 
Leger, as he only succeeded in taking lOOsovs. for second, Sailor Prince beating 
him by two lengths in the excellent time of 3min. 37secs. In the Autumn of the 
same year, though not himself at all, Carnage Avas placed third for the All Aged 
Stakes, and for the Australian Jockey Club Plate, and with the latter race 
terminated his labours for the year. In 1895, owing to the high form shown by 
Carnage in the preceding year, the heavy weights with which he was burdened 
stopped him in several races, but, nevertheless, carrying 9st., he won the Essendon 
Stakes of 300sovs., beating five runners, including his old opponent, Patron, one 
mile and a half in 2min. 40|secs., while he Avas second for the Canterbury Plate 
of 400SOVS., and Avhen nearing home, Avith 9st. on his back, for the Champion 
Stakes of l,000sovs., three miles, at the V.R.C. Autumn Meeting, he hit his leg 
and fell lame, notwithstanding Avhich he finished a good third behind Preston and 
the Harvester, Avho were each burdened Avith only 7st. 12lb. With this race ter- 
minated the turf career of this sterling, honest horse, who, from the many strains 
of the most successful running blood of the day in his pedigree (as may be 
seen on the adjoining jiage), is bound to prove equally successful at the stud. His 
first crop of foals (season 1897) shoAv very great promise.

31 THE HORSE-BREEDERS' HANDBOOK. 



CHAIN SHOT. 

Will le located during 1898 and following Seasons at the Tickhill Stud Farm, Bawtry, 
G.N.R., where he will be let to a limited number of approved mares {besides a few of 
Lord Scarbrough's) at dOgs. each maj-e and 1 guinea to the Groom. Application to 
be made to Mr. W. Goode, Stud Groom, as above. 

Chain Shot by Musket was bred in Australia in 1885 by the Hon. W. Robinson^ 
and is the son of imported Locket by Thunderbolt, bred in 1872 by Mr. C. Alexander, 
and now the property of Mr. D. Rutherford, of Leslie Hills, Australia. He is a 
bay horse, and is thus described by " Spectator," a well-known writer at the 
Antipodes : — " Handsome, did I say ? Yes, he is all that, and more ; a very hard 
horse indeed to beat in the matter of good looks, for he is one of the very finest 
topped horses I have ever seen, quite amongst the best-looking sons Musket gave 
us. This is saying something, but could he be shown in the same ring with those 
great guns Carbine and Trenton, I am sure that the force of my remarks would 
strike home to those who might be called upon to make a critical examination and 
selection. Yes, Chain Shot is an aristocrat amongst equines, and there is no wonder 
he has an unbeaten certificate in the show ring. He has size with his beauty of 
contour, natural muscular development such as is seldom seen in thoroughbreds of 
the day, and he is altogether the beau ideal of a racehorse and sire." It is a matter 
for extreme regret that an accident caused the cutting short what his deeds on the 
training grounds presaged — a most brilliant turf career. He had shown his trainer 
and owner some out and out good trials as a two-year-old when pitted against the 
best tackle the powerful Robinson stable could turn out, but he went amiss at a 
critical time, and was reserved for his three-year-old engagements. Chain Shot 
was winter favourite for the New Zealand Cup and Derby, and how he ran second 
in the C.J.C. Derby to Manton (believed by many to be every bit as good as 
Carbine), and ran the same horse to a length for the Canterbury Cup, will be long 
remembered by those who were present. On the death of the Hon. W. Robinson 
he was sold to Mr. D. Rutherford, for whom he won the Ladies' Bracelet at the 
Grand National Meeting as a four-year-old, during which season he was only started 
on two occasions. Since then Chain Shot has had a few mares given to him each 
season, and he is sire of Loveshot, Tutanekai, Lady Lear, Wedlock, and Salvo 
Shot; while another, the crack two-year-old of last season, Bombshell, won the 
C.J.C. Welcome Stakes, Dunedin Champagne, and C.J.C. Champagne, and 
lost the rich Challenge Stakes by a head only. Chain Shot combines the best of 
running strains. There is no need to mention Musket's side of the house. As for 
Locket, Chain Shot's dam, she produced Thunderbolt, full brother to Chain Shot, 
who proved himself every inch a racehorse, and who has left Thunderer, Thunder 
Queen, and other first-class horses in South Australia. Then her daughter 
Necklace (also full sister to Chain Shot) won the rich MaribjTong Stakes in 
Austraha, and at the stud produced Swordbelt, Collarette, Cravat, and Armilla, all 
winners, the last-named the best filly of her age in New Zealand ; while another 
full sister, Bangle (herself a brilliant performer), has bred Casket and Orion's Belt, 
both winners. There is also Medallion (Locket's last foal), who proved himself 
capable of racing the cracks of Australia as a two-year-old, and winning the classic 
races in New Zealand at two and three years old. More there is no occasion to say 
about .Chain Shot, who has only to be seen to insure his being widely patronised.

33 THE HORSE-BREEDERS' HANDBOOK. 



CHERRY RIPE. 

(the property of the right HON. LORD ROSSMORE, ROSSMORE PARK, 
MONAGHAN, IRELAND.) 

Will he located during 1898 and following Seasons at Camla Stud Farm, Monaghan, 
Ireland, lohere he loill be let to a limited numler of approved mares (besides a few of 
his' owner's) at 18gs. each mare, and Isov. to the Groom. Application to be made to 
Mr. William JDoogan, as above. 

Cherry Ripe (full brother to the flying Energy, Enthusiast, and many other 
good horses) by Sterling, was bred in 1885 by Mr. Y. R. Graham at the Yardley 
Stud in its palmiest days, and is the eighth produce of his dam, Cherry Duchess by 
The Duke, bred in 1871 also by Mr. Y. R. Graham. He is a golden chestnut with 
blaze face, and near hind pastern white ; standing 16 hands 1 in. high, girths 
6 ft. 6 in., and measures 9 in. below the knee. In his formation he combines great 
strength with quality, has extraordinarily long sloping shoulders, and short back, 
with grand, strong, lengthy quarters, very good bone, and beautiful temper, 
which he invariably imparts to all his young stock. Cherry Ripe was purchased 
by Lord Rossmore to put to the stud at a sale of the late Duchess of Montrose, 
at Newmarket, who sold him owing to the impossibility of his being trained, having 
had an accident to a hmb in his box. Alec Taylor, the late Manton trainer, under 
whose care Cherry Ripe was, stated to Lord Rossmore, after he had purchased him, 
that he was confident from his make and shape and splendid action he would have 
had a distinguished turf career had he been able to go on with his training. At the 
stud Cherry Ripe has had, so far, only a poor chance, the mares put to him, with 
two or three exceptions, being very moderate in appearance ; and yet he holds a 
wonderful record for siring winners. He is the best-tempered stallion possible, 
and is a sure foal-getter, a fact proved by some very old mares having bred to him 
when to other sires they had proved unfruitful. He is the sire of Red Heart, a 
real good two-year-old ; and all his stock that have been over a country have 
jumped quite marvellously well — Morello, Ballyalbany, Drogheda, etc. — so it may 
confidently be predicted that, if studmasters and other breeders will only patronise 
Oherry Ripe who is just now in his prime (13 years old), he will yet earn as high 
honours at the stud as any of his famous progenitors. The Duchess of Montrose 
gave over 2,000gs. for Cherry Ripe when a yearling. It is further to be noted that 
Drogheda won the " Grand National," 1898, beating a field of twenty -four runners.

CHILDWICK. 

(the property of sir J. BLUNDELL MAPLE, CHILDWICKBURY, ST. ALBANS.) 

Will ie located dxiring 1898 and the following Seasons at the Childwick Stud, St, Albans, 
Herts, where he ivill he let to a limited number of approved mares (besides a fen of his 
owner's'). Ap2)lication to ie made to Mr. Tom Castle, as above. Subscription full 
for 1898. 

Childwick, by St. Simon, was bred in 1890 by Sir Tatton Sykes, being the first 
produce of Plaisanterie (also dam of Raconteur by St. Simon) by Wellingtonia, bred 
in France in 1882. His sale and purchase, at the Doncaster blood sales in 1891, by 
Sir J. Blundell Maple for 6,000gs. (the highest figure ever given for a yearling), 
naturally created immense sensation, and his progress on the Newmarket training- 
grounds, and subsequently on the racecourse, was watched by the racing public with 
more interest than that of any other horse ever foaled. He is whole brown, and 
is remarkable for size, bone, and substance, standing 16 hands, girthing 6ft. 6in., 
and measuring 8^in. below the knee. Childwick commenced his short but dis- 
tinguished racing career when three years old, in 1893, by running third to Red 
Ensign and Treasure for the Prince of Wales' Stakes, value 2,025sovs., at Ascot, 
the remainder of the field comprising Son of a Gun, Harbinger, and Gamboge. 
At the Newmarket Houghton Meeting Childwick, carrying 7st. 91b., successfully 
opposed Orme (4yr3., lOst.) and Pilot (-iyrs., 8st. 81b.) for the Limekiln Stakes 
(Im. 11yds.) of l,025sovs., which he won by three parts of a length. In 1894, 
when four years old, Childwick commenced by running fourth, carrying 9st. 51bs., 
to Quaesitum (4yrs., 9st. ) for the Gold Vase at Ascot, the other runners comprising 
Sarana (3yrs., 7st. 31b.) second, Barmecide (aged, 9st. 41b.) third, Paddy (5yrs., 
9st. 41b.), Irish Car (3yrs., 7st. 51b.), Golden Slipper (4yrs., 9st.), and Montezuma 
(4yrs., 9st.) ; and he did not appear again until the Newmarket Second October 
Meeting, when he highly distinguished himself by carrying 7st. 91b. to victory for 
the Cesarewitch Stakes, value l,0353ovs., defeating the French horse Callistrate 
(4yrs., 8st. 131b.) by four lengths, the remainder of the field comprising Shrine 
(aged, 7st. 111b.) third, Lutin (3yrs., 7st.), Opera Glass (3yrs., 6st. 31b.), Newcourt, 
Ragimunde, Comedy, Cypria, Amiable, Insurance, Gleamaway, Quilon, Filepa, 
Braemar, Highland Buck, Pennyless, William, Farndale, Lord Barnard, Syndic, 
Sir Benjamin, and Sacristy. This performance, coupled with his beating Orme 
when an unfurnished three-year-old, at once confirmed and justified the expectations 
entertained by Sir J. Blundell Maple of Childwick's worth as a racehorse, and he 
is deserving of the highest commendation and thanks of breeders, both at home and 
abroad, for thus early withdrawing this splendidly bred son of St. Simon from the 
turf to the stud, and thus afEording them the opportunity of breeding from a sire 
of unimpaired constitution and full of the most successful running blood of the 
day, as may be seen by his pedigree given in extenso on the opposite page.

COMMON. 

(the property sir of J. BLUNDELL MAPLE, CHILDWICKBURY, ST. ALBANS.) 

Will le located during 1898 and following Seasons at Childwich Stud Farm, St. Albans, 
where he 7vill cover a limited immber of approved mares {besides a few of his owner's^. 
Application to be made to Mr. Tom Castle, as above. 

Common, by Isonomy, was bred in 1888 by Lord Alington at the Crichel Stud, and 
is the sixth produce of Thistle (also dam of Spud by Hampton, Throstle by 
Petrarch, etc.) by Scottish Chief, bred in 1875 by Mr. Cowper-Temple. He is a 
dark Yorkshire brown, with star and no other white, standing 16 hands 2in., while 
he girths 6ft. 7in., and measures close on 9in. below the knee. The chief charac- 
teristics of Common are his fine size and length, combined with great power and 
splendid quality, rendering him one of the grandest specimens of the thorough- 
bred horse ever foaled. Being a much ovei'grown backward colt, his joint owners, 
Lord Alington and Sir Frederick Johnstone, paid forfeit for him in all his two- 
year-old engagements ; and it was not until 1891 he made his appearance on 
a racecourse, the event selected for his dehut being the Two Thousand Guineas 
Stakes, worth that year 4,250sovs. to the winner. Opposed by eight runners he 
won this rich prize very easily by three lengths from Orvieto (second), Peter Flower 
(third), and St. Simon of the Rock (fourth), the remainder of the field com- 
prising Cleator, Cuttlestone, Gouverneur, Ragimunde, and Rousseau. Gouverneur 
was the favourite, and as much as 9 to 1 was betted against the winner, owing to 
his backward, unfurnished appearance. Improving rapidly in appearance within 
the next few weeks, Common started a warm favourite for the Derby, 11 to 10 
being betted on him, and he secured the " Blue Riband " just as easily as he had 
appropriated the Two Thousand, Gouverneur taking second honours on this occasion, 
while the third place was filled by Martinhurst (subsequently purchased by Mr. S. 
G. Reed, and taken to Pasadina, California, where he died in the following year), 
while the other runners comprised Cuttlestone, The Deemster, Dorcas, Fitz-Simon 
Old Boots, Orion, Peter Flower, and Simonian. Common had no difficulty in 
continuing his winning career at the Royal Meeting, as for the St. James' Palace 
Stakes of l,900sovs. he was only opposed by Barbatello, whom he beat easily, giving 
him 71b. ; but at Sandown Park, although 2 to 1 was betted on him, he only finished 
third to Surefoot and Gouverneur for the Eclipse Stakes, the field behind him 
comprising Orion, Alloway, Fusee, Le Nord, Memoir, and Rathbeal. After this 
unlooked-for defeat Common was reserved for the Doncaster St. Leger, which^ 
with 5 to 4 betted on him, he won in a canter from Reverend (second), St. Simon 
of the Rock (third). Admiral, Bosphorus, Cuttlestone, Mimi, Orvieto, and Patrick 
Blue. With this great victory terminated Common's turf career, and having thus 
easily won the " triple crown," he was purchased by Sir J. Blundell Maple for 
15,000gs., and is now first lord of the harem at the Child wick Stud. He had forty- 
one mares put to him during his first season (1893), of whom thirty-five had foals 
(now two-year-olds); while in WeatJurby's Supplement to the "Stud Book" for 
1894 he is credited with thirty foals (now yearlings)— fourteen colts and fourteen 
fillies, besides dead twins, whose sex is not given. He is sire of Nun Nicer, winner 
of the One Thousand, and ten other winners of stakes amounting, in the aggregate, 
to 10,3G0sovs.

CRAFTON. 

(the property op the COMPTON stud, GILLINGHAM, DORSET,) 

Will le located during ISdS and following Seasons at the Comjpton Stud Paddocks, Gil- 
lingkam, Dorset, where he mill serve a limited nuviber of approved mares {besides a 
fern belonging to the Compton Stud) at 18gs., and \sov. to the Groom. Mares proving 
barren to Grafton will be taken the ensuing season at half the advertised fee, and 
special terms granted for dams of good winners, or for several mares the property of 
the same owner. All ajjpUcations to be made to the Stud Manager, as above. 

Crafton, by Kisber, was bred in 1882 by Lord Rosebery, and is the third produce 
of Chopette (also the dam of Cutlet by Macaroni, Salutation by Town Moor, etc.) 
by North Lincoln, bred in 1869 by Baron Mayer de Rothschild. He is a bay horse, 
with black points, of great power and quality, standing 16 hands high, girths 6ft. 4in., 
and measures 8Jin. below the knee. At the sale of the Mentmore yearlings Crafton 
was purchased by Lord Gerard (then Mr. W. Gerard) for 800gs., and ran four 
times in 1884, when two years old — viz., for the Halnaker Stakes at Goodwood, 
which he won, beating Satchel and eight others ; and was third at the same 
meeting to Langwell and Lady Clarendon for the Maiden Plate (6fur.). Then at 
Doncaster Crafton ran Lonely to a neck for the Rous Stakes, having behind him 
Lady Katharine, Londonderry, Eurasian, Merry Duchess, Blitz, and three othei-s ; 
but at Newmarket failed in his attempt to give Aladdin 2st. and Cartago 3st. for 
the Second October Nursery Stakes. When three years old Crafton started in 
three races. These were the Two Thousand, for which he ran second to Paradox, 
beaten by a head only, and having behind him Child of the Mist (third), Langwell, 
Sheraton, Golden Ray, and Lord Charles ; the Derby, for which he was unplaced 
to Melton, Paradox, and Royal Hampton ; and third to Bendigo and Swillington 
for the Hardwicke Stakes at Ascot. When four years old, in 1886, Crafton 
showed excellent form, winning several good races. Early in the year, being a 
gross horse, not easily got fit, he was defeated by Fulmen for the Lincolnshire 
Handicap ; by Royal Hampton for the City and Suburban ; and by Loved One 
for the Wokingham Stakes ; and at Derby, in a large field, he was second to 
Kingwood for the Welbeck Cup ; but at Sandown Park ran unplaced to Tyrone 
for the Surbiton Handicap. At Goodwood, however, his time came at last, as) 
although 33 to 1 was betted against him, he fairly ran away with the Stewards' 
Cup from a field of twenty-five opponents, including How's That (second), 
Lucerne (third), Melton, Brighton, Mallow, and all the best speed of the day. At 
Brighton Crafton, carrying 9st. 41b., achieved an equally easy victory for the 
Marine Plate, beating Stourfield, Fast and Loose, and eleven others. Then, at 
Derby, carrying 8st. 121b., he won the Peveril of the Peak Stakes of OoOsovs. from 
How's That, 3yrs., 7st. 41b., Mons. de Paris, 4yrs., 6st., and thirteen others. In 1887, 
when five years old, Crafton was second at Derby to Gloriation for the Doveridge 
Cup ; and at Goodwood was third to Upset and Tib for the Stewards' Cup ; while 
next day he ran his last race, third to Cissy and Invention, for the Chichester 
Stakes. In 1889 Crafton was put to the stud, and is already the sire, from a very 
limited connection, of several winners, including Alveole, Crathie, Curly Craft, 
Grig, Freak, Irish Car, Marksman, and Prank, besides Archer, a good winner in 
Germany. Crafton is the only horse at the stud (in the United Kingdon) repre- 
senting the Kisber line, a most valuable combination of Buccaneer and Birdcatcher. 
Crafton, with far fewer opportunities than he is deserving of, is already the sire of 
Aliment, Beaulieu.Grig, Lass Colt, Irish Car, Miss Custance, Tempest II.. Temple- 
combe, and Wild Man, who won nineteen races worth 3,892sovs. He has several 
good winners in Germany, notably Archer, Erzlump, etc.

DESPAIR. 

(the property of MR. W. G. STEVENS, COMPTON STUD, NEWBURY, BERK?.) 

Will he located during 1898 at the Compton Stud Paddocks, NervMory, ivliere he will hi- 
let to a limited number of approved mares (besides a few of his mvner's) at lOO^s. each 
mare {dams of winners of SOOsows. half-price), and 1 guinea the Groom, Application, 
as above, to be made to Mr. A. Stevens. 
Despair, by See Saw, was bred in 1879 by Mr. W. G. Stevens, and is the third 
produce of his dam Peine de Coeur (also dam of Carissima, Relief and Pit-a-Pat, 
all by See Saw, Hartley Prince by Prince Charlie, etc.) by Friponnier, bred in 1872 
by Mr. H. "Waring at the Beenham Stud. He is a chestnut horse, 15 hands 3 in. 
high, of excellent symmetry, power and substance, measuring upwards of 8 in. 
below the knee. Despair commenced his long and successful racing career at the 
Sandown Summer Meeting, 1881, by winning the British Dominion Stakes from 
Kingdom (second), Cariad (third), and a large field besides. He next ran at the 
Worcester Summer Meeting, where he won both the Great Witley Stakes and the 
Coventry Stakes, beating Gaydene, Filly by Adventurer out of Free Kirk, Sir Robert 
and Satellite, giving them lumps of weight. At the Lewes Summer Meeting, for the 
Great South of England Breeders' Stakes, in a field of thirteen smart two-year-olds,, 
he ran Executor to a short head, giving him 51b. ; and his last effort that year was 
made for the Champion Breeders' Foal Stakes, wherein he ran Dutch Oven to three- 
quarters of a length. In 1882 Despair, carrying 6st. 101b., ran throughout among 
the first four for the Lincolnshire Handicap, comprising Poulet, 5yrs., 8st. 71b. 
(the winner). Master Waller, 5yrs., 7st. 131b., and Buchanan, 5yrs., 8st. ; and 
so highly was he thought of for the Royal Hunt Cup, that the heavy weight 
of 7st. 21b. was given him, and yet it took Sweetbread, of the same age, all 
his time to beat him carrying only 6st. 41b., as he finished a close third 
behind Edensor, 4yrs., 7st. 81b., with a field of seventeen behind him. At 
Goodwood he failed to concede Actress 121b. for the Lennox Stakes ; but 
he showed a bold front for a long way in the Cambridgeshire Stakes, giving 
the winner Hackness, 4yrs., 1st. 21b. In 1883 Despair contended in ten races, 
three of which he won, viz., the Stamford Plate at Epsom, beating Foreshore 
(giving him 1st. 91b.) and six others ; the All-Aged Stakes at Ascot, beating 
Magician, 4yrs., and Narcissa, 3yrs. ; and the Wokingham Stakes, carrying 8st. 71b.,. 
from Hornpipe, 6yrs., 8st. 21b. (second), Tyndrum, 3yrs., 6st. 91b. (third), and 
fourteen others ; having on the previous Wednesday, carrying 8st. 81b., run third 
to Elzevir, 3yrs., 7st. 71b., and Nesscliff, 5yrs., 7st. lOlb., for the Royal Hunt Cup. 
At Kempton Park it occasioned no surprise his failing to beat Whipper-in, giving- 
that good horse 1st. 81b. ; but in his last race that year for the Great Challenge 
Stakes, he startled the Newmarket folk not a little by very nearly upsetting the 
high odds betted on the " crack " Busybody (subsequently winner of the Oaks), as 
he ran her to a neck, while he had behind him Tristan, Vibration, and Hermitage. 
In 1884 Despair was allotted such heavy weights that he only succeeded in winning 
one of the twelve races for which he contended ; but he gained quite as much eclat 
by the series of defeats he sustained, having been placed second on no fewer than 
five occasions and third on two others. He achieved his winning race at Lewes for 
the De Warrenne Handicap, carrying 9st. 51b., and beating Antler, 4yrs., 7st. 41b., 
Mespilus, 4yrs., 7st. 121b., St. Vincent, 4yrs., Gst. 41b., and Reverse, 5yrs., 6st. 31b. ; 
while at Ascot he was second to Geheimniss for the All- Aged Stakes ; at Kempton 
Park second to Boulevard for the July Handicap, giving him 181b. ; at Leicester 
second to Prism for the Leicestershire Cup, giving him 71b. ; at Derby second to 
Laceman for the Hartington Plate, giving him 81b. ; and at Derby November, 
second to Prince William, 3yrs., giving him 2st. lib. In 1885 Despair's racing 
career upheld his previous reputation. He was third to Corunna and MacMahon 
for the Leicestershire Cup, giving the winner 1st. 61b. ; was second to Dalmeny for 
the Stewards' Cup at Goodwood, giving him 1st. 101b. ; second at Newmarket to 
Modwena for the Great Challenge Stakes, giving that flyer 1st. 111b. ; and at the 
same meeting second for the All-Aged Stakes to Energy. In 1886 Despair won two 
of the six races for which he contended, viz., the All- Aged Plate at Epsom, beating 
Maxima, carrying 7st. 131b. ; and the Royal Hunt Cup at Ascot, beating Le Caissier, 
3yrs., 6st. 21b., Kinsky, 5yrs., Gst. 2Ib., and eleven others. In 1887 Despair ran nine 
times with varying success, but in his last contest for the Portland Plate at 
Doncaster he proved, by running third to Lisbon and Queen of the Dale, giving 
each 211b., that he retired to stud life with neither his fine speed nor constitution 
the least impaired ; and further proof of this was afibrded in 1896 by eleven of 
his progeny, including Bentworth and Hopbine, winning 30 races of the value of 
7,294sovs. In 1897 Despair's progeny continued to distinguish themselves in an 
equally remarkable manner, as nineteen of them won 44 prizes of the value of 
9.212SOVS., including the Cambridgeshire Stakes, won by his son Comfrey, beating 
nineteen runners, after having previously won eight races.

DOG ROSE. 

(the property op R. SNEYD, ESQ., KEELE HALL, NEWCASTLE, STAFFS.) 

Will be located during 1898 and following Scaso7is at the Keele Stud, Newcastle, Staffs., 
where he will cover a limited nvmber of ajjproved mares at 14.yors. each, including 
Groom's fee. All ap;plicatio)is to be made to Mr. H. V. Boothby, Keele Estate Office, 
as above. Special terms to dams of good winners. 

Dog Rose, by See Saw, was bred in 1883 by Mr. J. Hume Webster, and is the 
seventh produce of Hedge Rose (also the dam of Sweetbriar by Speculum, Monte 
Rosa by Craig Millar, etc.) by Neptunus, bred in 1867 by Mr. Jackson. Dog Rose 
is a rich golden chestnut, with blaze face, and a little white on his ofE hind coronet. 
He stands 15 hands 3^in. high, girths 6ft. lin., and measures Sin. below his 
knee. Like his stable companion, Blue Green, he had a long and most chequered 
career on the racecourse, running in forty -five races, eleven of which he won ; while 
he was placed second in eleven events and third in four others. In 1885, when two 
years old, he ran at Leicester, unplaced to Hygiene, for the Wigston Plate, and was 
third at the Bibury Club to Prettyface for the Grosvenor Stakes. In 1886, when 
three years old, Dog Rose won twice — viz., the Maiden Plate at Derby, beating 
Percica, Happy Hampton, and Rosette ; and the Montrose Plate of 400sovs. at 
Four Oaks Park, beating Arga, Everett, Lord Charles, and eight others. For the 
Willow Handicap, at Newmarket, he was second to Yule Tide in a field of seventeen 
runners ; and then again at Newmarket he was second to Monsieur de Paris for a 
Sweepstakes. At Sandown Park Dog Rose was third to Lilymaid and Campbell for 
the Carrington Stakes ; and at Derby ran unplaced for the Chatsworth Stakes won 
by Tib. In 1887, when four years old, he again only succeeded in winning two 
races — the Flying Handicap at the Newmarket Second Spring Meeting, and the 
Chatsworth Plate of 519sovs. at Derby. In the former he beat Debenture, Cata- 
ract, Invention, and three others ; but at Derby he defeated a strong field, including 
Castlereagh, Gloamin, Grecian Bend, and twelve others. At Liverpool he was 
second to Invention for the Hylton Cup ; at Kempton Park, second to Shimmer for 
the Easter Handicap ; at Newmarket, second again to Shimmer for the Stand 
Handicap Plate ; at Manchester, second to Sissy for the Stewards' Plate ; at 
Liverpool, second to Shimmer for the Stewards' Cup ; while at Manchester he was 
second to Isobar for the Flying Handicap, having behind him Sweet Alice, Everett, 
and fifteen others. In 1888, when five years old, Dog Rose ran but moderately, 
except for the Croxteth Plate of 500sovs., at Liverpool, which he won easily from 
Fulmen, Sea Song, Castlenock, and four others. In 1889, when six years old. Dog 
Rose came out in his best form. He began by running fourth to Juggler, Duart, 
and Helmsley for the Hylton Stakes at Liverpool Spring Meeting ; was third to 
Kelpie and Saucy Lass for the Sussex Plate at Brighton ; and then at the Newmarket 
Second Spring Meeting, carrying 8st. 131b., he won the Visitors' Plate from Present 
Alms, 3yrs., 7st. 101b., Scotch Air, 3yrs., 7st., and twenty-one others by two lengths. 
Then at Epsom he was second to Corbielle for the Egmont Plate in a field of 
thirteen runners ; while at Manchester he was second to Present Alms for the 
Beaufort Handicap, having behind him St. Patrick, Castlenock, and fourteen 
others ; while at Newmarket, for the third time in succession, he had to be content 
with second honours for the Bottisham Handicap, won by Noble Chieftain, the 
other runners comprising FuUerton, Scotch Earl, Thelma, and Love in Idleness. 
At length merit had its reward, for at Goodwood, carrying 7st. r21b., and ridden 
by Woodburn, he won the Stewards' Cup of 60'2sovs., with the odds of 100 to 7 
against him, by a neck from Amphion, 3yrs., 8st. 121b., Noble Chieftain, 4yrs., 
Sit. 71b., and fifteen others ; and this great victory he followed up two days sub- 
sequently by winning the Chichester Stakes from Gloamin, Maiden Belle, and five 
others. These were the chief performances of Dog Rose, whose stock hold out 
great promise, as he is already the sire of Catkin, Rose Mallow, Rosy Kate, Hips 
and Haws, Nameless Lady, Rosey O'More, and Storny Hill, who have between them 
won six races worth 751sovs., the three last-named bred in Ireland, where he stood 
for a season. He is returned for 1897 as the sire of five colts and two fillies (now 
yearlings). A yearling by him was sold at the last Doncaster sale for 760gs.

DONOVAN. 

(the property of his grace the duke of PORTLAND, WELBECK ABBEY.) 

^Vill te located d\t,ring the Seaso7i 1898 at Riifford Abbey, where he will cover a limited 
number of approved mares (besides a few of his ow7iers) at 200gs., and 1 guinea to 
the Groom. Ajfplicalion to be made to T. Warner Turner, Esq., Welbeck, Worksop. 

Donovan, by Galopin, was bred in 1886 by His Grace the Duke of Portland, 
and is the third produce of Mowerina (also the dam of Modwena by Galopin, 
and Semolina by St. Simon, etc.) by Scottish Chief, bred in 1876 in Denmark. 
He is bay with black points, standing 16 hands high, girths 6ft. 2Jin., and 
measures 8Jin. below the knee ; while for trutii of conformation and bloodlike 
appearance he cannot be excelled. Donovan, had a most distinguished career on 
the turf, and early showed great racing capabilities, winning in 1888, when two 
years old, no fewer than eleven races, including the Brocklesby Stakes at Lincoln, 
the Portland Plate value 6,000sovs. at Leicester, the New Stakes at Ascot, the 
Bibury Club Stakes and the Hurstboume Stakes at Stockbridge, the July Stakes 
at Newmarket, the Ham Stakes at Goodwood, the Buckingham and Hopeful Stakes 
at the Newmarket First October Meeting, the Middle Park Plate at the Second 
October Meeting, and at the Houghton Meeting the Dewhurst Plate ; an unpre- 
cedented series of victories in which he beat amongst others Australia, Astraboe, 
Antibes, Criniere, Clover, El Dorado, Enthusiast, Evergreen, Bryony, Fleur-de-Lys, 
Frederick James, Fair Marion, Gulliver, Gazelle, Gold, Kettlebury, L'Avare, 
Madame Galvani, Poen, Porlock, Present Alms, Pantomime, Piquet, Seclusion, 
Sigbert, Unrefined, Your Grace, etc. On two occasions only was he defeated when 
two years old — viz., by Chittabob, to whom he ran second for the Whitsuntide Plate 
at Manchester ; and by El Dorado for the Prince of Wales' Stakes at Goodwood. 
When three years old, in 1889, Donovan's performances were, if possible, still more 
brilliant. With 13 to 8 betted on him, he won the Prince of Wales' Stakes worth 
lljOOOsovs. at Leicester by two lengths from Pioneer, Minthe, Enthusiast, Cool 
Larrikin, Silver Penny, Scottish Fusilier, St. Patrick, and eight others. The 
Newmarket Stakes, worth 6,000sovs., fell to him, beating Turcophone, Laureate, 
Enthusiast, Papyrus, Oriel, Evergreen, Royal Star, Wishing Gate, and eight others. 
For the Derby 11 to 8 was freely betted on him against liis eleven opponents, whom 
he beat easily, Miguel taking second honours, with El Dorado third, the remainder 
of the field comprising the French horse Clover, Enthusiast (winner of the Two 
Thousand), Folengo, Laureate, Morglay, Gay Hampton, Gulliver, Pioneer, Royal 
Star, and Turcophone. Then at the Royal Meeting he had no difficulty in winning 
the Prince of Wales' Stakes from Royal Star, Enthusiast, and several others. At 
Doncaster the St. Leger fell to him without an effort, Miguel again taking second 
honours, with Davenport third ; while among the nine other runners were Enthu- 
siast and Chittabob. At Manchester for the Lancaster Plate, worth 10,131sovs,, 
€ to 4 was betted on him against Chittabob, Alicante, Seabreeze, and seven others, 
whom he beat easily ; and he wound up his brilliant career at Newmarket by 
winning the Royal Stakes from Minthe, 100 to 7 being betted on him, Altogether 
Donovan won eighteen races, of the value of 53,15;'>sovs. Although not patronised 
to the extent of his deserts, Donovan is the sire of Velasquez (next to Galtee More 
the best horse of his year), winner of the Princess of Wales' Stakes and Champion 
Stakes at Newmarket, worth in the aggregate 9,157sovs., and several other winners.

ENDURANCE. 

(the property of MR. Y. R. GRAHAM, YARDLEY STUD, BIRMINGHAM.) 

Will he located during 1898 and following Seasons at the Yardley Stud, Birmingham, 
where he mill cover a limited numher of mares (besides a few of his owner's) at bOgs. 
each mare. Application to he made as ahovc to Mr. Y. R. Graham. 

Endurance, by Sterling (sire of Isonomy, etc.), was bred in 1889 by Mr. Y. R. 
Graham at the Yardley Stud, and is the ninth produce of Siluria (sister to Wenlock, 
and also dam of Gisela [Hambledon's dam, etc.] by Musket, Geologist, Tenax 
[Stowmarket's dam, etc.], and Tibby, all by Sterling, etc.) by Lord Clifden, bred in 
1870 by the Yardley Stud. He is a dark chestnut, with star and narrow stripe 
down his face, while his near fore and hind fetlocks are also white. His height is 
15 hands 3J inches, and he girths 6 feet 2* inches, while he measures 8J inches 
below the knee, and is a powerful, thick, well-balanced, muscular horse, up to any 
ordinary weight ; and, further, he shows all the quality for which his sire, Sterling, 
was so remarkable, and is very likely to emulate his success at the stud, if the 
good looks of his yearlings and foals may be taken as a criterion ; while the action 
of the former bids fairly to emulate that of their sire, who was one of the finest 
gallopers ever trained at Newmarket. Endurance, it may be remembered, was 
purchased when a yearling by Mr. Douglas Baird for 2,000gs., and looked quite 
worth 5,000, while he turned out far the best colt (three-year-old) purchased by 
him from the Yardley Stud, and Enthusiast and Enterprise were among his 
purchases ; but, unhappily, in his trial with Martagon, then five years old, whom 
he beat at even weights, and several others in a canter, he hit his leg so badly 
that Mr. Baird decided to resell Endurance back to Miss Isabella Graham for 
the use of the Yardley Stud ; and Mr. James Ryan considered and said, Endurance 
was one of the best horses he has ever trained ! Such is the brief history of one 
of the best-looking sires now at the stud, and whose pedigree, given in extenso on 
the opposite page, can in no way be excelled. Endurance is already the sire of 
four winners— Endure, Bicorniger, Record Reign, and the filly out of Volscian 
Queen — who among them have taken eight races worth £1,250 10s. ; and in 1897 
he is credited with being the sire of four colts and eight fillies (now yearlings), 
two of which (a colt and filly) are dead, while Sedate by Sefton foaled dead t\nns 
to him.

4Q THE HORSE-BREEDERS' HANDBOOK. 

FLORIZEL II. 

(the property of his royal highness the prince of wales, K.G., 
SANDRINGHAM, NORFOLK.) 

Will he located during 1898 and following Seasons at The Heath Stud Farm, next the 
July Course, Newmarket, when he tvill be let to a few j^ublic foaling mares (besides 
a few of his owner's), at \00gs. each mare, and 1 guinea to the Groom. Subscrijptions 
tu be taken from The Manager, Blood Stock Offices, 32, St, James' Street, London, S. W. 

Florizel II. (full brother to Persimmon), by St. Simon, was bred in 1891 by 
His Royal Highness the Prince of Wales, and is the third produce of his dam, 
Perdita II. (dam also of Barracouta by Barcaldine, Persimmon by St. Simon, 
Farrant by Donovan, Azeeza by Surefoot, Sandringham by St Simon, Diamond 
Jubilee by St. Simon (yearling), and in 181)7 she slipped br. c. foal by St. Simon, 
etc.), by Hampton, bred in 1881 by Lord Cawdor. He is a brown horse of very 
true formation, fine length and substance, standing, 16 hands 2in., girths Gft. 
4 in., and measures below the knee 8^ inches. This fine performer, being over- 
grown and weak, failed to show his true form in 1893, when two years old, as he 
ran very indifferently in the four races for which he contended. Se ran first at 
Manchester in September for the Breeders' Foal Stakes of l,300sovs., five furlongs, 
for which he was unplaced to St. Hilaire, who beat Sempronius easily, Aumbry a 
bad third, and five others. In his next attempt at Newmarket for the Boscawen 
Stakes, T.Y.C., he ran Priestholme to three-quarters of a length with three others 
behind him ; but he failed to get a place in either of the two Nursery Handicaps 
for which he subsequently contended. Having wintered well, Florizel II. came out 
like a giant refreshed in 1894, and won five of the ten races for which he contended. 
He commenced at Ascot by winning the rich St. James' Stakes worth l,650sovs. 
from St. Hilaire, Athlone, and St. Florian, and this success he followed up next day 
by winning the Forty-First Triennial Stakes of GOOsovs., beating Basildon, Bard of 
Avon, and Speed. In his next two ventures, however, he was not so fortunate, as 
at Sandown Park for the Clarence and Avondale Biennial he could only get third 
to Lady Minting and Priestholme ; while at Hurst Park carrying 6st. 51b., it 
being evident in the running that no boy could get him out, he was again 
third to Victor Wild (4yrs., 8st. 51b.), and Dormoschen (4yrs., 7st. 21b.). At 
Goodwood, on the Old Mile, he won the Corinthian Plate of 200sovs., beating 
Mortaigne, Whisperer, and four others ; and at Brighton he took the High Weight 
Handicap of SOOsovs. from Eoyal Harry, Erin, and two others. At Doncaster, 
he finished third behind Harfleur II. and Lucy Cross, for the Alexandra Plate • 
and on returning to Newmarket, Harfleur II. again beat him for the October 
Handicap ; but in the second week he easily appropriated the Royal Post Stakes of 
eiOsovs. from St. Hilaire and Speed ; and he terminated the year's labour by 
running unplaced for the Cambridgeshire Stakes, won by Indian Queen. In 1895, 
Florizel II., at Epsom, won the stakes bearing his royal owner's name, beating 
Wherwell (giving him 91b.) and ten others ; then carrying 8st. 31b. the Prince's 
Handicap of l,000sovs. at Gat wick fell to him, beating Villiers, (Gyrs., Gst. 111b.), 
Gazetteer (4yrs., 7st. 131b.) and eight others ; and he next appropriated the 
Manchester Cup worth l,947sovs., giving Green Lawn (second) 81b., the Docker 
(third) 201b,, eight others beaten off. The Gold Vase at Ascot, with 580sov8. in 
specie, was a mere canter for him, and the Goodwood Cup he won by 8 lengths 
from Thessalian, his only opponent. After this came his only defeat that year, and 
perhaps his most brilliant performance, carrying 9st. into the fourth place for the 
Cesarewitch behind Rockdove by Gallinule, (4yrs., Gst. 101b.), Bard of Avon, (4yrs., 
88t. 31b.), and Count Schomberg (3yrs., Gst. 91b.) ; after which ho beat None the 
Wiser anyhow for the Jockey Club Cup. In 1896 Florizel II. ran once (although,

GALLINULE. 

(the property of captain J. H. GREER, CROTANSTOWN, NEWBRIDGE, CO. KILDARE.) 

Will he located at Bnmmstown House Stud Farm, Curragh, co. Kildare, Ireland. I/u 
sybscription is full for ths present Season at 60gs. each mare, and 1 guinea to t/ie 
Groom. 
Gallinule, by Isonomy (winner of the Cambridgeshire, etc.), was bred in 1884 by 
Mr. J. C. Hill, and is the third produce of Moorhen (also dam of Osprey by High- 
born, Pioneer by Galopin, etc.), bred in 1873 by Lord Hartington. He is a 
chestnut with blaze face, and both hind heels white. His height is 16 hands, 
and he measures 8^ in. below the knee , while in shape and appearance he is of the 
true Birdcatcher type. Gallinule made his first appearance on a racecourse in 
1886, and during the year contended in eight races, three of which he won. His 
debut took place at the Leicester Spring Meeting in the Excelsior Breeders' Foal 
.Stakes, for which, with eleven other two-year-olds, including Caller Herrin, April 
Fool, and Aintree, he was beaten by Binder by Beauclerc ; but at his next 
attempt carried off the Queen Elizabeth Stakes at the Kempton Park First 
Summer Meeting, defeating Lindisfarne by a length. Prickles and Cottingham 
being well beaten. At the Leicester Summer Meeting he ran second, carrying 
8st. 111b., to Salisbury, 9st. 31b., for the Zetland Stakes of 1,500 sovs., being only 
defeated by a neck, St. Mary, 8st. 61b., third, the others, including Hugo, Agnostic, 
Silverwood, The Rector, Spot, etc. At the Sandown Park Second Summer 
Meeting he then won the National Breeders' Produce Stakes of 1,336 sovs., 
carrying 8st. lllb., by four lengths, from Martley, 8st. lllb., Maxim third ; Flower 
Girl, Diablesse, Hop Bitters, etc., among the beaten. At the Sandown Park Club 
September Meeting, carrying 8st. 121b., he again defeated a large field for the 
Sandown Nursery Plate of 500 sovs., Macleod, 7st. 101b., being second, and 
Retirement, 6st. 91b., third, the field besides comprising Despair, Rhythm, Overton, 
Binder, and three others. At the Kempton Park October Meeting he then carried 
9st. 21b. into a good second place to Martley, 8st. 21b., for the Kempton Champion 
Nursery Handicap, Roodee, 7st. 51b., third ; Carrasco, 7st. 101b., Nora, 7st. 61b., 
and Carnage, 7st. 4lb. , being among the defeated. At the Derby November 
Meeting he made the final appearance of his brilliant two-year-old career for the 
Chesterfield Nursery, won by Lourdes, 7st. 81b., and carried the top weight, 
8st. 41b., in the van throughout this arduous contest, in which twenty-six horses 
took part. In 1887 Gallinule only ran three times, being defeated on the first 
occasion, in the Leicestershire Spring Handicap, with eleven other first-class horses, 
by the six-year-old Kinsky, who was conceding only 1st. 41b., at a mile. His next 
appearance was in the Jubilee Stakes, at Kempton Park, won by Bendigo, aged, 
9st. 71b., from Martley, 3yrs., Gst. 121b., when he again showed a bold front, 
carrying 7st. 31b. The last contest in which he took part that year was at York, 
when he ran a fine race at even weights with Panzerschiff for the Great Yorkshire 
Stakes, being defeated by only three-parts of a length ; whilst Cactus, King Milan, 
Royal Charter, and Hero were all well beaten. In 1888 Gallinule contended in 
seven races, but he was again so well taken care of by the handicappers that he 
failed to carry his colours to victory. Minting beat him and seventeen others for a 
renewal of the Jubilee Stakes at Kempton Park ; and it was not surprising that, 
carrying 8st. 91b., he went down before Annamite, 4yrs., Gst. l'21b.. Veracity, 4yrs., 
7st. 51b., and Fulmen, aged, 7st. 21b., the first three in the "Wokingham Stakes ; nor 
that he failed to concede 2st. 21b. to his relative. Astrologer, for the Peveril of the 
Peak Stakes. In Veracity's Cambridgeshire he was made to concede 91b. to that 
sterling honest performer ; and good care was also taken of him in his two subse- 
quent races, the Derby Handicap, at Derby, and the Lancashire Handicap, at 
Manchester. In 1889, Gallinule, 5yrs., 7st. 91b., at length had a chance given him 
for the Lincolnshire Handicap, and he started a warm first favourite at 7 to 1, in a 
field of twenty-six horses ; and was running in the front rank, apparently with the 
race in hand, when a blood-vessel breaking in his head, the finish of the contest was 
left to his stable companion. Acme, 4yrs., 8st. 71b. (whom it was well known 
Gallinule had beaten in a trial at home), and Wise Man, 4yrs., 7st. Sib., the latter 
of whom secured this valuable prize (worth 1,614 sovs.) by half a length, with The 
Baron, 5yrs., 7st. 91b., third, beaten a length and a half. A repetition in his work 
of the sad contretemps that lost Gallinule the Lincolnshire Handicap caused his 
early withdrawal from the racecourse to the stud ; and he has already proved to be 
one of the most successful stallions of the day, being the sire of Ballcoote, Lesterlin, 
Portmarnock, Rockdove, Gazetteer, Conquering Hero, besides many other winners.

53 THE HORSE-BREEDERS' HANDBOOK. 

GALOPIN. 

(the property of the blankney stud company.) 
Will he located during 1898 and fnUorviyig Seasons at Blankney Hall, Sleaford, Lincoln- 
shire, where he will be let to a limited number of approved mares (^besides a few of his 
owners) at 300^#. each mare a7id 1 guinea to the Groom. Application to be made, as 
above, to the Stud Groom. ' 

Galopin (winner of the Derby 1875, etc.), by Vedette (winner of the Two Thou- 
sand, etc.), was bred in 1872 by Mr. W. Tayler Sharpe, and is the tenth produce of 
The Flying Duchess (also the dam of Vega, Pevensey, and Vex, all by Vedette, etc.) 
by The Flying Dutchman, bred in 1853 by the Marquis of Exeter. He is a rich 
dark brown with small star, the only white, and he carries the Voltaire and 
Voltigeur crest. His height is 15 hands 3 J inches, very deep in his chest, Avith 
beautiful shoulders, round barrelled, strong and muscular, with powerful quarters. 
— altogether a horse of excellent formation and fine quality, with superb action. 
Through the advice of Mr. John Dawson, Galopin was purchased for 500gs. at the 
Middle Park YearUng Sale in 1873 by Prince Batthyany, and in the following year 
he made his debut on the turf, at the Epsom Spring Meeting, in the Hyde Park 
Plate. For this event, in a field of eighteen runners, Cashmere beat him by a 
head ; but, having cannoned him two or three times, was disqualified, and Galopin 
awarded the race. His next appearance was at Ascot, in the Fern Hill Stakes, 
which, ridden by F. Archer, he won by five lengths, beating Slumber, Lady 
Glenorchy, Little Boy Blue, and the speedy Quantock ; while next day he carried 
9st. 5lb. to victory for the New Stakes, beating Vie Victis (8st. 71b.) second. Earl 
of Dartrey (8st. lOlb.) third, and eight others. Galopin's next engagement was 
the Middle Park at Newmarket, for which, carrying 9st. 3lb., he ran third to 
Plebeian (8.st. 6lb.) and Per Se (8st. 3lb.), heads only dividing the three, with Holy 
Friar close up fourth, while the remaining twenty runners were scattered all over 
the course. This was a stunning, great performance, and had Galopin not been 
cannoned against in the running he would have won to a certainty, for so little 
did that severe contest affect him that he next day won a sweepstakes of 50sovs. 
each, beating Trisorier ; while at the Houghton Meeting he walked over for 
another sweepstakes of 50sovs. each. In 1875 he ran first at the Newmarket 
Second Spring Meeting, in a match for 500sovs. a side, carrying 8st. lOlb., against 
Mr. H. Chaplin's Stray Shot (3yrs., 8st.), which he won easily by a length, the 
betting being 11 to 8 on him. His next appearance was at Epsom for the Derby, 
which, ridden by Morris, he won, after a severe race, by a length from Lord 
Aylesford's C!laremont (Maidment up). Lord Falmouth's colt by ]\Iacaroni out of 
Piepentance (subsequently named Kemorse), ridden by F. Archer, being third, 
beaten six lengths. Fourteen others ran, including Balfe, Bay of Naples, Cam- 
ballo (winner of the Two Thousand), Garterley Bell, etc., and the betting was 
2 to 1 against Galopin, 100 to 12 against Balfe, 9 to 1 against Camballo, 100 to 8 
against Repentance, and 100 to 7 each against Bay of Naples and Claremont. 
Galoinn's next engagement was at the Royal Meeting, in the Fernhill Stakes, 
worth 480SOVS., which he won in a canter from Mr. M. Dawson's Bella (2yrs.), 
Duke of LTgest's Rosaletta, and two other two-year-olds. During the remainder 
of the summer Galopin led a life of idleness ; but in the autumn he was again put 
into work for the great match of l,000sovs. a side, in which he was pitted to carry 
8st. 2lb. against Mr. Bird's Lowlander (5yrs., 9st.), Rowley Mile, and this he 
accomplished cleverly by a length, the betting being 6 to 4 on him, ^lorris being 
again his steersman, while George Fordham rode Lowlander. This event, which 
caused immense interest, was run at the Second October Meeting at Newmarket, 
and later in the week Galopin won the Newmarket Derby (1 mile 4 furlongs) of 
6"i0sovs., beating Craig Miller— fresh from his St. Leger victory — (9st. 4lb. each), 
Balfe (8st. lUb.) third, while Pic-nic, Saint Leger, and New Holland also ran. 
The betting was 9 to 4 on Galopin, 13 to 2 against Craig Miller, and 10 to 1 each 
against Balfe and Pic-nic ; won easily by four lengths, Balfe (eased) was as far 
behind Craig Miller. Later on in the year, at the Lincoln Autumn Meeting, 
Galopin received forfeit from Mr. H. Chaplin's Hazledean in a match for 500sovs. 
half-forfeit, after which he was withdrawn from the turf to the stud, where he has 
attained the most brilliant success, being the sire of St. Simon and Donovan (winner 
of the Derby and St. I.eger), besides upwards of one hundred and twenty winners, 
including Atalanta (dam of Ayrshire, etc.), P>litz, Corrie Roy (dam of None the 
Wiser, etc.), Castelar, Chesterfield, Flitters, Flyaway, Fulmen, Gagoul, Galeazzo, 
Galleottea, Galliard (winner of the Two Thousand), Galore, Galvanic, Gantlet, 
Go Lightly, Gossoon, Grafton, Keraunos, Modwena, Nighean, Oberon, Pioneer, 
Satchel, etc.

55 THE HORSE-BREEDERS' HANDBOOK. 

GONE COON. 

(the property op the right HON. THE EARL OF SCARBROUGH, SANDBECK PARK.) 

Will he located during 1898 and following Seasons at the Tickkill Stud, Bawti-y, Yorhs., 
n-here he will be let to a limited number of approved mares {besides a few of his 
owner's') at 50gs. each, and 1 guinea to the Groom. Application to be made to Mr. 
William Goode, Stud Groom, as above. 

Gone Coon, by Galopin, was bred in 1888 by the Duke of St. Albans, and is the 
first produce of Hors de Combat (also the dam of Gauntlet by Godolphin, etc.) by 
Hampton, bred in 1883 also by the Duke of St. Albans. He is a bay, framed on 
a larger scale and possessing all the fine points of his distinguished sire. He stands 
16 hands, girths nearly 6ft. 4in., and measures 8^in. below the knee. Gone Coon 
commenced his racing career when two years old, in 1890, in the Berkshire Plate 
at Windsor, for which, carrying 8st. 81b., he ran second to Simonetta (2yrs., 8st. 
51b.), in a field of six runners, the four behind him being Euphony, Mallard, 
Romance, aud Beauharnais. In the Champion Breeders' Foal Stakes of 994sovs. at 
Derby, in September, Gone Coon easily defeated ten smart opponents, including 
Springtime (8st. 51b.) second, Bumptious (9st. 21b.) third, and eight others, and 
this was his last appearance that season. In 1891 Gone Coon began his three- 
year-old performances by running Friar Lubin to a head (carrying 9st. each) for 
the Craven Stakes, value 588sova., at Newmarket Spring Meeting, among the six 
runners behind him being Grand Master (8st. 101b.), Adieu (8st. 101b.), Patrician 
(8st. 71b.), Ammonite (8st. 51b.), Gavotte (8st. 121b.), and King's Evil (8st. 101b.). 
Gone Coon's next appearance was at the Newmarket Craven Meeting in the 
Hastings Plate (Im.), for which he ran an equally good race with his old opponent. 
Friar Lubin, who, for the second time, succeeded in beating him by a short head at 
even weights, while there were again six behind him, including Lord Henry 
(8st. 31b.), Springtime (9st. 41b.), Sheldrake (8st. 31b.), Morillon (8st. 41b.), Crown 
Princess (8st.), and Petard (9st. lib.). Gone Coon, carrying 7st. 121b., also ran 
third to Greenwich (aged, 7st. 21b.) and Ben (7st. lUb.) for the Midland Counties 
Handicap at Warwick in November, having behind him Burnaby (4yrs., 8st. 51b.), 
Poussin (4yrs., 7st. 111b.), Bad Start (3yrs., 8st. 71b.), Freshet (4yrs., 8st. 31b.), and 
Gentle May (3yrs., 6st. 71b.). At Goodwood Gone Coon also ran close up fourth, 
carrying 7st. 31b., for the Chesterfield Cup (Im. 2fur.), won by Shrine (4yrs., 
6st. 61b.) ; and at the Derby November Meeting he ran well for the Handicap 
Plate, won by Warlaby. In 1892 Gone Coon ran in no fewer than fourteen races, 
four of which he won, while he was placed in four others. He first took the 
Lammas Plate (Im.) at Sandown Park, beating Monk and Leah; and this he 
followed up by winning the Stoneleigh Maiden Plate at Warwick, for which, 
carrying 9st. 7li3., he defeated Rockhampton (3yrs., 7st. 121b.), Albert Moore (3yrs., 
7st. 121b.), Canary Bird (3yrs., 7st. 91b.), and Nimbus (4yrs., Sst. 7ib.). At the 
Newmarket First October Meeting, carrying 8st. 111b., he won the Trial Stakes, 
beating Sprightly (8st. 31b.), Lottery (9st. 91b.) third. Detective, Shewbread, 
Ornatus, Master of the Horse, Canobie, and Sheldrake ; while at Gatwick he won 
the Horley Handicap, value 410sovs., by a neck, carrying 8st. 111b., from Dower 
(3yrs., 7st.), Florrie (9st. lib.), Versifier (4yrs., yst. lib.) Simonite (4yrs., 8st. 131b.), 
First Consul (5yrs., 8st.), Ancajano (3yrs., 8st. 111b.), Romeo (3yrs., 7st. 121b.), 
and Ejector (3yrs., 7st. 121b.). Among his other notable performances were a 
second to Golden Garter for the Trial Plate at Newmarket, when he was beaten 
by only a neck at even weights, among the nine behind him being Orontes (3yrs., 
8st.), Simon de Montfort (4yrs., 9st. 21b.), etc. He also ran a close second for the 
Kempton Park Welter Haudicap (Im.), to EUerton (oyrs., list. 121b.) who succeeded 
in defeating him by a neck only ; and he occupied the same position behind 
Achilles II. for the Arundel Plate at Hurst Park, beating D'Orsay and Ejector. 
At Hurst Park, for the Prince of Wales' Stakes, he ran fourth, carrying 8st. 91b., 
to Heremon (5yrs., 8st. 31b.), Braemar (3yrs., 7st. 111b.) being second and Bach 
(3yrs., 7st. 81b.) third ; while in a field of twenty-three runners for the Derby Cup, 
value l,6G0.sovs., he was placed fourth, carrying 7st. 51b., to Warlaby (aged, 8st. lib.), 
Ermak (4yrs., 8st. 91b.), and Earl of Annandale (3yrs., 6st. 51b.), the field behmd 
him including Lady Rosebery, Euclid, St. David, Lauriscope, Esmond, Sprightly, 
Lady Hermit, etc. This very smart performance was Gone Coon's last on the 
racecourse, and it cannot but be admitted that his performances displayed con- 
sistently both speed and stamina in 'good company. Lord Scarbrough must be 
considered fortunate in securing this good-looking son of Galopin for the use of 
the Tickhill mares, several of whom are bred to mate successfully with him. In 
the "Stud Book" return for 1897 Gone Coon is credited with being the sire of 
three colts and two fillies (now yearlings).

57 THE HORSE BREEDERS' HANDBOOK. 

GREENLAWN. 

(the property of MR. ALEXANDER MARC, 42, PARK STREET, LONDON.) 

Will he located during 1898 and folloinnq seasons at the Staple Hall Stud, Bletchley, 
Bucks, when he tvill he let to a limited nvmher of approved mares (besides a few of 
Ms owner's') at 22//*. each and 1 gui7iea to the Groom. Application to be made to 
Mr. J. 6. 3Iosenthal, or to the Stud Groom as above. 
Greenlawn by Kendal was bred in 1891 by Mr. P. J. Hartigan in the County 
Limerick, and is the fifth produce of his dam Buda (also dam of Meanus and 
Kendal Green, both by Kendal, besides the colt by Arklow, etc.), by Balfe, bred in 
1883 by Mr. W. Pallin, Ath^arvan Lodge, Curragh. He is a brown horse 15 hands 
Sin. in height, girth 6ft., and measures ^\n. below the knee. In his formation 
Greenlawn cannot be excelled, having splendid shoulders, grand back and loins, with 
beautiful, strong, lengthy quarters, showing immense propelling powers. Greenlawn 
ran his first race at Cork Park in the Lee Plate for two-year-olds, his only engage- 
ment in 1893, which he won easily from five opponents, among whom was that 
great horse Clorane, besides Melba and Pockdove. When three years old Green- 
lawn ran five times and was successful once — viz., for the Leopardstown Grand 
Prize of 380sovs. over 5 furlongs, which he won easily, having six others behind 
him ; and he was later in the year purchased by Mr. A. Marc, who leased him to 
Mr. Adolphus Cohen, in whose name he ran all his subsequent races. In 1895 
Greenlawn ran in eight races and was three times successful He commenced by 
winninar easily the first event of the year, the Trial Stakes at Lincoln (carrying 
9st. 111b.), beating Leader (3 yrs., 7st.), Bellincione (3yrs., 7st. (ilb.\ and four 
others ; and in his third and fourth efforts he was likewise successful, winning the 
Regulation Welter Plate at Kempton, carryinsr the big burden of lOst. 71b., 
beating King's House (3yrs., 8st. 61b.), King 'Mark (.3yrs.. 8st. 61b,\ and four 
others ; and the Somersetshire Stakes at Bath, beating Midnight Sun, The Tinman, 
Oatlands, Trionfi and, Clenstone. For the IManchester Cup he ran second carrying 
7st. 71b. to Florizel II. (4yrs., 8st. lib.) ; and he then ran fourth in the Doncaster 
Welter Handicap carrying lOst. 31b., and won bv Yitez, same age (7st. 131b.) ; 
while in the Duke of York Stakes at Kempton Park, carrying 8st. 51b., he ran 
unplaced to his stable companion Missal (4yrs.. 6st. 111b.). Greenlawn's last 
engagement in 1895 was the Cambridgeshire, in which, carrying 7st. 131b., he was 
defeated by INlarco (5yrs. old, 7st. 91b.). It was in this race that Greenlawn 
hurt bis near fore-leg, and the injury inflicted thereby caused his experienced 
trainer, Mr. Alfred Day, no end of trouble in the following year, and which was 
the reason of Greenlawn failing to show anything like his true form ; for in 
1896 he ran six times unsuccessfully. In 1897 Greenlawn's first attempt was 
in the Lincolnshire Handicap -in which (carrying 6st. 71b.) he was fifth to Wink- 
field's Pride (4yrs., 8st. 91b.), Funny Boat (4yrs., 6st. 111b.) second, Bridegroom 
(4yrs., 7st. 31b.) third, Clorane (6yrs., 9st. 81b.) fourth ; a head between first and 
second, with less than a head between each of the other three ; and it is generally 
admitted, but for being cannoned against, Greenlawn would have won. His first 
success was for the Liverpool Spring Cup (carrving 7st. 121b.) beating St. .Tarlath 
(4 yrs., 9st. 61b.), Amphidamas (6yrs.. 7st. 101b.), and seven others. He next 
won the Fulwell Apprentices' Plate at Kempton Park ; and he then won the Eslier 
Stakes at Sandown Park (carrying 7st. 51b.) from Jaquemart (3yrs., 6st. 121b.), 
Conroy (4yr8., 7st 71b.), and eight others. This pretty sequence he followed up by 
winning the Prince's Handicap of ^OOOsovs. atGatwick (carrying 8st. 1.31b.) beating 
Martin (4yr8., 7st. 91b.). Shaddock (4yrs., 9st. 31b.) third, with five others beaten 
off. In the Royal Hunt Cup he ran third (carrving 8st. 81b.) to Knight of the 
Thistle (4yrs., 7st. 51b.), and Victor Wild (aged, 9st. 121b.). At Goodwood for the 
Cup Greenlawn ran nowhere to Count Schomberg ; nor was he placed (carrying 
9st.) in the Chesterfield Cup, won by Birchrod (4 yrs., 7st. 71b.). He next ran in 
the Ayrshire Diamond Jubilee Handicap, second (carrying 9st. 71b.) to Northern 
Farmer (3 yrs., 7st. 121b.) beaten by a head onlv, with seven others behind him ; 
while on the same afternoon fcarrying list. 81b.), he was defeated by Berkeley 
(lOst. 111b.), for the County Cup, his previous severe race having evidentlv told 
on him. Greenlawn's two final engagements were in the Gatwick October Handi- 
cap, for which (carrying 9st. 51b.) Nonsuch (3 yrs., 7st. ,51b.) beat him ; and in 
the Liverpool Autumn Cup for which he was defeated by Chiselhampton (4yrs., 
8st. lib.). This good and thoroughly game horse was then withdrawn from the 
turf and put to the stud, where from his fine breeding, splendid formation, great 
beauty, and quality, he is bound to be a success, and creditably perpetuate the 
great fame achieved bv his sire Kendal.

whence he has his name. His height is 15 hands 2in., girth 6ft. 2in., and he measures 
S^in. below the knee ; while he is particularly well proportioned and true shaped, 
with fair power, beautiful quality, and fine temper. Grey Leg made his first 
appearance in 1893, when two years' old, at the Newmarket Craven Meeting for 
the Ashley Plate of 200sovs., 5f ur., for which, in a field of seven runners. Favour 
Koyal beat him by a head, with Rhythm a bad third ; while at the Lewes Spring 
Meeting he was again second, Arcano effecting his overthrow for the Abergavenny 
Stakes. Grey Leg next won three engagements in succession — viz., the Newmarket 
Two- Year-Old Plate of 227sovs., beating Amiable, Kiss, and two others ; the Finden 
Stakes of 260sovs. at Goodwood, beating Fresca, Glenlogan, Amphidamas, and three 
others ; and, carrying 7st. 51b., the Southdown Plate of 200sovs., Gf ur., at Brighton, 
beating Harfleur II. (3yrs., 9st. 81b.), Clwyd (2yrs., Gst. 91b.), and seven others. 
At Doncaster, carrying Sst. 101b., he ran unplaced for the Prince of Wales' Nursery 
Plate of 885sovs., won by Maunday Money (7st. 81b.) from Aumbry (Gst. 71b.), 
Simonburn (7st.), and ten others. At Newmarket he won the Prendergast Stakes 
of 697sovs. from Stowmarket and two others ; and also the Free Handicap of 
GOOsovs., carrying 9st., from Serana (7st. 71b.) and six others. In 1894 Grey Leg 
ran in thirteen races, six of which he won. His first venture was on the Carholme, 
carrying 7st., where he unfortunately lost start for the Lincolnshire Handicap, won 
by Le Nicham (4yrs., Sst. 71b.); his second attempt was for the City and Suburban, 
carrying 7st., which he won easily from Xury (3yrs., Gst. 91b.), second, and 
Le Nicham (4yrs., 9st. 31b.), third, in front of eight others, among whom were 
Callistrate (4yrs., 9st.), Victor Wild (4yrs., 7st. 1211).), and Cabin Boy (oyrs,, 
Sst. 61b.); and this great victory he followed up at the Newmarket First Spring 
Meeting by winning the March Stakes of 440sovs., Rowley mile, in a canter from 
Evermore, his only opponent. He next ran at Ascot, where he could only get third 
to Delphos (3yrs.) and Royal Favour (2yrs.) for the Fern Hill Stakes ; but at the 
same meeting, carrying 9st. 71b., he easily appropriated the New Biennial Stakes of 
795sovs. from Curzon (2yrs., 7st. 91b.), Maunday Money (Syrp., 9st. lib.), and 
Glare (3yrs., 9st. lib.). At Stockbridge no opponent troubled Grey Leg for the 
Cup of 290SOVS.; and at Goodwood, carrying 8st. 711)., for the Stewards' Cup, he 
finished fourth, close up to Gangway (4yrs., Sst. Gib.), Worcester (4yrs., 7st. 81b.), 
and Court Ball (3yrs., 7st. Gib.), with seventeen others behind him. Carrying 
Sst. Gib., he next ran unplaced for the Peveril of the Peak Plate at Derby, won by 
Worcester (4yrs., 7.st. 111b. At Doncaster Grey Leg showed his high form by 
carrying Sst. 1 lib. into the first place for the Portland Plate, worth 795sov8., having 
behind him Erin (4yrs., 7st. 101b.), second, Mecca (■'yrs., 7st. 71b.), third, and twelve 
others. This victory, so cleverly gained, caused his being so heavily weighted that 
he was beaten by Clwyd for the Prince Edward Handicap at Manchester; by Marco 
for the Kennet Plate ; by Matchbox for the Lowther Plate ; and by Dumbarton 
for the Derby Cup, his last race when three years old. In 1895 Grey Leg ran in 
seven races, two of whicli he won, and displayed very high form in others, 
particularly the Great Jubilee Stakes, for which, carrying Sst. 21b., he ran second 
to Victor Wild (oj-rs., Sst. 41b.), having a field of sixteen horses behind him, 
including El Diablo (Gyrs., 7st. 121b.), Ravensbury (5yrs., Sst. 131b.), Laodaraia 
(.5yrs., Sst. 41b.). etc. He won the All Aged Stakes T.Y.C. at Ascot, beating Moor 
and Go Lightly; and at the same Meeting the New Biennial of 780sovs. fell to him, 
beating Curzon and Venia. His next venture was for the Cup at Stockbridge, in 
which, having to give Clorane (4yrs.) .121b., and Woolsthorpe (aged) 4lb., the 
former won easily, while Grey Leg finished a neck behind Woolsthorpe. At the 
Newmarket October Second Meeting Grey Leg ran his last race for the Champion 
Stakes, reduced to a match, in which Laveno beat him Across the flat.

HAZLEHATCH. 

(the property of captain W. H. fife, LANGTON hall, NORTHALLERTON.) 

WM be located, during 1898 and the following Seasons at Langton Hall Stud, North- 
allerton, Yorks., where he will cover a limited number of mares at 32^«., and 1 guinea 
to the Groom ; two mares, the property of same owner, 25gs. each ; three mares the 
price of two, arid dams of winners at the same rate ; mares barren to him taken next 
season at IQgs. Apply, Manager, as above. 

Hazlehatch, by Hermit, was bred in 1885 by Mr. H. Chaplin, and is out of 
Hazledean (also dam of Hazledell by Hermit, Hazlemere by Galopin, and Kermesse, 
etc.) by Cathedral out of the good mare Nutbush, bred in 1872 by Mr. W. I' Anson. 
He is a rich chestnut, of fine symmetry and great muscular development, standing 
16 hands lin., while he girths 6ft. 4in., and measures 8|in. below the knee. His 
turf career commenced in 1887 at Derby as a two-year-old, where he at once dis- 
tinguished himself by winning the Champion Breeders' Foal Stakes, value l,004sovs., 
in a canter, by a length and a half from Fitz-Adam, Pull Together, Hanover, and 
eight others. At Manchester he then won the Breeders' Foal Stakes, value 1 ,200sovs., 
quite as easily from Bright Star, Sky Pilot, Satiety, Aperse, and four others ; and 
he ran second at Newmarket to Friar's Balsam, Seabreeze (receiving 31b.) being 
third, for the Middle Park Plate. As a three-year-old, in 1888, he also achieved 
some notable successes, though defeated at Newmarket in his early essays by Orbit 
in the Craven Stakes, and Galore in the Hastings Plate. Yet when running second 
to Galore, as he had eight good horses behind him, including Sheen to whom he was 
giving 131b. and also weight to the winner, this was a creditable performance. In 
his next attempt at headquarters he won the Newmarket Stakes, beating Hark 
and Jolly Dog by a length ; and followed this up at Ascot by defeating L'Abbesse 
de Jouarre, weight for age, by three-quarters of a length for the Fern Hill Stakes. 
He then ran prominently in the valuable Electric Stakes at Sandown, finishing 
second, with 9st. 71b., to Bullion (8st. 101b.), among those behind him being Juggler, 
Senanus, and Bartizan. His next appearance was in the Midsummer Plate, worth 
825sovs., at the Newmarket July Meeting, when he beat Cotillon at even weights, 
besides Ddvote and Dorothy Draggletail ; and his last essay that season was in the 
Stewards' Cup, at Goodwood, when he carried a high weight, unplaced, to the five- 
year-old Tib (6st. 71b.) in a field of twenty- one runners. In 1889, as a four-year-old, 
he competed several times in good races, carrying high weights. At Newm"arket, in 
the Peel Handicap, he carried 8st. 121b. to victory over Fra Diavolo (5yrs., 6st. 121b.), 
and six others ; but such prohibitive weights as 8st. 111b. in the Doncaster Spring 
Handicap, won by Dazzle (9lit. 91b.), 8st. lib. in the Princess of Wales' Handicap, 
won by Johnny Morgan (4yrs , 7st. 91b.), and 8st. 71b. in the Molyneux Cup, won 
by Upset (7st. 131b.), and 98t. 41b. in the Middlesborough Handicap, won by More- 
battle (8st. 41b.), did not permit him to increase the number of his victories that 
season, which was his last on the turf. In 1891 Hazelhatch was put to the stud, 
and from the few mares put to him is already the sire of three winners — Besom, 
Rejoinder, and Nuthatch, the two former of whom would doubtless have won more 
races had they not gone amiss with the Newmarket fever ; while another of his 
daughters. Lord Radnor's Hazelhen, also distinguished herself by running North 
Sea to half a length, in a field of nine runners, for the Michaelmas Stakes of 
SOOsovs. at Sandown Park. In 1896 he had nine winners of fourteen races worth 
3,057sov8, ; and in 1897 nine of his progeny won thirteen races wofth 3,097sovs. 
He is returned in 1897 as the sire of seven colts and thirteen fillies, all living and 
holding out great future promise.

ISINGLASS. 

(the property of H. MCCALMONT, ESQ., M.P., CHEVELEY PARK, NEWMARKET.) 

^yill le located during 1S9S and following Seasons at Cheveley Parle, JVeinnarket, idierc 
his snbscrij)tUin list, at 2>00gs. a mare, for this year is already filled, excejit twj 
nominations, for which ajjpHcation may be made, as above, to lUr. Penniiijton. 

Isinglass, by Isonomy (winner of the Cambrid.cjeshire, etc.), was bred in 1890 by 
Mr. H. McCalmont, and is the eighth produce of his dam, Dead Lock (also the dam 
of Gervas by Trappist, Islington by Isonomy, Craftiness by Crafton, Strike by 
Satiety, etc.) by Wenlock, bred in 1878 by Lord Alington. He is a bay with star 
and snip, and one hind fetlock white. His height is 16 hands 1 inch, with very 
deep brisket, splendid shoulders, strong back, lengthy, muscular quarters, and 
capital bone. This splendid horse ran his first race when two years old, in 1892, 
at the Newmarket Second Spring ^Meeting, for the Two-year-old Maiden Plate of 
200SOVS., on the Rous Course, which he won easily from Sweet Laura, Quickly 
Wise, and eight others : and this success he followed up at Ascot by winning the 
New Stakes, worth 2,006sovs., easily by two lengths, from Fealar, Ravensbury, 
and seven others, including Royal Harry (who started favourite). Royal Mask, 
and Phocion ; while he achieved his third and crowning two-year-old victory for 
the Middle Park Plate, worth 2,375sovs., beating Ravensbury (second), Le Nicham 
(third), Raeburn (fourth), and the following not placed : — Armorel, Dame President ^ 
(who started favourite). Grand Duke, Inferno, INIilford, Montauvert, Peppercorn, 
Queen's Pardon, Royal Scot, and Silene — won by a length and a half, a neck 
between second and third, 10 to 1 against the winner. In 1893, when three years 
old. Isinglass won the " triple crown," as the Two Thousand, Derby, and St. Leger 
fell to him just as easily as he accomplished his three two-year-old victories. The 
Two Thousand, worth 4,250sovs., he won by three parts of a length, with 5 to 4 
betted on him, beating Ravensbury (second), Raeburn (third), Harbinger, Kil- 
marnock, Perigord, Royal Harry, St. Jude, Son of a Gun, and "Watch Tower. For 
the Derby, worth 5,515sovs., 9 to 4 was betted on him, when he again beat Ravens- 
bury (second), Raeburn (third). Dame President, Irish Wake, Lord William, 
Peppercorn, Quickly Wise, Ftoyal Harry, Son of a Gun, and William ; and for the 
St. Leger, worth 5,300sovs., with 95 to 40 betted on him, he again beat Ravensbury 
(second), Le Nicham (third), Self-Sacrifice, Phocion, Glengall, and Khartoum. 
Then he took, besides, the rich Newmarket Stakes, worth 3,795sovs., from Phocion, 
Ravensbury, and four others ; but for the Great Lancashire Stakes at ^Manchester 
he could only get second to Raeburn, to whom he was conceding lOlb., but he had 
La Fleche and Lady Caroline behind him. In 1894 Isinglass continued his 
winning career by appropriating the Princess of Wales' Stakes, worth 10,91 Isovs., 
for which he was opposed by Bullingdon (second), Ladas (third), St. Florian 
(fourth), Ravensbury, and Priestholme ; then the Eclipse Stakes, worth 9,285sovs.> 
fell to him, beating Ladas (second), Ravensbury (third), Throstle, Irish Wake, 
Priestholme, aud Raeburn ; and he wound up the year by taking the Jockey 
Club Stakes, worth ll,302sovs., very easily from the French horse Gouvernail 
(second). Son of Mine (third), Raeburn, St. Florian, Throstle, and Priestholme. 
In 1895 Isinglass only carried silk once— viz., for the Ascot Gold Cup of 
3,000sovs., which he won in a canter from his two opponents Reminder and 
Kilsallaghan ; thus on the Royal Course putting a very fitting, as well as final, 
seal to his wonderful racing career, which has no. parallel in the annals of the 
turf, having won, in eleven races, the unprecedented total of 67,135sovs. In 1897 
Isinglass is returned <as the sire of seven colts and twelve fillies (no-v yearlings), 
besides three dead foal-:, sex not stated.

KENDAL. 

(the property of MR. JAMES E. PLATT, BRUNTWOOD STUD, CHEADLE, CHESHIRE). 

Will he located during 1898 and following Seasons at the Bnmtwood Stud^ Cheadle, 
Cheshire, ivhere he ivill cover a limited number of approved mares {besides a few of 
his owner's) at 200gs. each mare, and 1 guinea to the Groom. Application to bemade 
to C. J. Corston, Stud Groom, as above. Full for 1898. A few subscriptions can bj 
booked for 1899 at dOOgs. No maiden mares taken. 

Kendal, by Bend Or, was bred in 1883 by His Grace the Duke of Westminster, at 
Eaton, and is the eighth produce of his dam Windermere (also dam of Muncaster 
by Doucasier, Rydal by Bend Or, etc.) by Macaroni, bred in 1870 by Sir Tatton 
Sykes. He is a dark chestnut with star, and is ticked with black spots ; while he 
stands 16 hands lin. high, girths 6ft. 5in., and measures 8^in. below the knee. 
Kendal commenced his short but brilliant turf career when two years old, at 
Chester, in 1885, where 5 to 4 was betted on him for the Mostyn Plate, which he 
won easily from Lowdown, Venetia, Vain Hope, and Prickly Pear. He next ran 
at Ascot, where, in a field of seven horses, he was second to Saraband for the 
New Stakes, those behind him including St. Michael, Volta, Calais, Kaunitz, and 
Skyscraper. At Stockbridge he won the Post Sweepstakes of TOOsovs., beating 
Mephisto and Volta ; and continuing his victorious career at Newmarket he placed 
the July Stakes, worth l,780sovs., to the credit of the Duke of Westminster, beating 
Mephisto, St. Alvere, St. Mirin, Seaton, Calais, Kaunitz, Arides, and Cataract. At 
Goodwood (having previously been twice tried at Kingsclere and proved to be 
better than Ormonde) he won the Ham Stakes of 650sovs., beating Modwena and 
Jacobite ; and at York he took the Convivial Stakes without an effort from Mis- 
chief, Lord Lumley, and Tempannetta. At Don caster Kendal walked over for the 
Municipal Stakes ; but soon after his return from the north he hit his leg in a 
training gallop, from the effects of which he was suffering when defeated by Volta 
for the Rous Stakes at Newmarket, which terminated his turf career. In relation 
to Kendal havmg been twice tried with Ormonde, the second trial took place 
owing to the first not having been deemed satisfactory, and was, in fact, a 
miniature race, other horses being engaged in it that no mistake might be made. 
It was won by Kendal by a good length, as had been the first trial. From 
a knowledge of this fact, and owing to his excellent performances, Mr. John 
Gubbins purchased Kendal at a high figure, and he became first lord of the harem 
at the Knockany Stud, co. Limerick, where his success was quite phenomenal, 
nearly all his progeny having won races in Ireland. Amongst his stock, which 
have lately distinguished themselves in England are Galtee !More, winner of the 
Two Thousand, Newmarket Stakes, Derby, and St. Leger ; Greenlawn, winner 
of the Liverpool Cup, besides several valuable handicaps ; Laodamia, Kendale, 
Kendal Queen, Kentness, Morning, Kenwyn, Kentshole, Toffy, Marietta, Red 
Prince II., Roy Neil, and a host of other horses which have held their own on 
English racecourses. Kendal is undoubtedly a good stock-getter, as can be seen 
by Weathcrhif s Supplements to the "Stud BoocS" ; and he holds the proud position 
of heading the list of winning sires for 1897 with 28,850sovs., being the value of 
the 28 races won by his progeny.

67 THE HORSE-BREEDERS' HANDBOOK. 



KILWARLIN. 

(the property of sir ROBERT AFFLECK, BART., DALHAM HALL, NEWMARKET). 

Vdl be located during 1898 and the folloivlng Seasons at the Ilill Stud Farm, one mile 
from Kennct Station, on the Great Eastern Railway, where he ivill he let to a limited 
nu7nber of a^j^roved mares (besides a few of his ow?ier's) at Togs, each mare. No 
Groom's fee. 

KiLWARLiN, by Arbitrator, was bred in 1884- by the late Tom Conolly, trainer, at 
Curragh View, co. Kildare, Ireland, and is the fourth produce of Hasty Girl (also 
dam of Bendigo and Slane, both by Ben Battle, etc.) by Lord Gough, bred in 1875 
by Mr. R. H. Long, in co. Tipperary, Ireland. He is a brown horse with short 
back and good loins, standing a little over 16 hands high, on grand legs, and shows 
great power and quality. Kilwarlin was purchased when a yearling by James 
McKenna, the trainer, who sold him about Christmas that year to Mr. C. J. Blake, 
who gave 1000 gs. for him orn behalf of himself and Capt. Machell, when he was im- 
mediately transferred to the care of J. Jewitt, at Newmarket, who trained him for 
his several engagements. He ran his first race in August 188G, at Stockton-on-Tees, 
for the Wynyard Plate of 700 sovs. (six furlongs), which he won easily from Gloriation 
(who was giving him lllb), with Whittington (third), and six others beaten off ; 
and this success he followed up by winning the Harrington Stakes of 75G sovs. at 
Derby, beating Jack o' Lantern (second), Cactus (third), and two others. On the 
next day, however, Kilwarlin, with 20 to 1 on him, had his colours lowered 
when he attempted to concede Reve d'Or (subsequently winner of the Oaks) 171b. 
for the Bretby Plate, although he gave the same weight readily enough to Tactic, 
the only other runner. In 1887 Kilwarlin contended in seven races, three of which 
he won, including the Doncaster St. Leger, while he was placed in three others. 
He commenced by carrying 8st. 51b. into a good third place behind Southill, 3yrs., 
6st. 91b., and Debenture, 5yrs., 6st. 101b. (second), for the Princess of Wales 
Handicap (five furlongs), at Sandown Park, having behinel him a field of thirteen 
horses, comprising the best speed of the day. At Kempton Park he was shut in at 
the bend when contending for the Jubilee Stakes, won by Bendigo ; and in his 
next attempt, at the Royal Meeting, he went down before the mi>j;hty Ormonde for 
the Rous Memorial Stakes. On the same afternoon, however, he accomplished a 
very easy victory for the New Biennial of (> 10 sovs., beating Hark, Dardanelles, 
Roger the Monk, and Panzerschiff ; but on Friday, for the Queen's Stand Plate, 
he failed in his effort to give 2st. lllb. to Crowberry, though he easily secured 
second honours from Mesmerist. Kilwarlin, who became the property of Lord 
Rodney for 7,000 gs., was now indulged in a little rest, after which he was put in 
active work for the Great St. Leger, for which he divided favouritism with 
Eiridspord, who, however, cut but a poor figure in the race, which Kilwarlin won 
easily by two lengths from Merry Himpton, who beat Timothy by a head only for 
the second money, the other runners comprising Pliil (fourth), Saville, Scottish 
King, Eiridspord, Grandison, and Carrasco. Kilwarlin ran his last race at New- 
market, on Friday, October I4th, for the Tenth Great Challenge Stakes of 435 sovs., 
which, carrying 9st. 21b., he won easily from Frondeuse, 2yrs., Gst. 131b., Wise 
Man, 2yrs., Gst. lllb., Fleur de Marie, 2yrs., 6st. 'Jib., and Bella Donna, 2yr3., 
Gst. 91b. ; and thus terminated with great eclat the racing career of an exceptionally 
good horse, who, as the best son of jA.rbitratur, and being out of Bendigo's dam, is 
bound to achieve as great distinction as a sire. Put to the stud in 1889, Kilwarlin, 
although not patronised to anything like the extent of liis deserts, is already the 
sire of several winners, including Amy Roberts, Bird of Passage, Hebron, Kilcock, 
Kilkee, La Turbie, Leominster, Rudder, Seaside, Royal Harry, Ware Riot, Break of 
Day, Harp-on, Kirkwall, etc. ; and in America of Ogden (dam Oriole by Bend Or), 
winner of the Great Futurity Stakes of 12,000sov8.

6ft. 3in., and measures 8jin. below the knee. Lactantius made his first appearance 
when two years old, in 1889, at Lincoln, where he ran a good second to the Duke 
of Portland's Semolina for the Brocklesby Stakes, having behind him Salutation 
third, Heresy fourth, Carrick, Carthusian, and eight other runners. At Epsom 
Spring Meeting Lactantius was again second, Overveen beating him for the West- 
minster Stakes ; and in his third essay for the Spring Two-Year-Old Stakes at 
Newmarket, he was again second, the speedy Heresy (also by Petrarch) effecting 
hia overthrow by half a length. At Kempton Park he ran a close third to 
Signoi'ina and Alloway for the Grand Two- Year-Old Stakes, having behind him 
Coromandel, Charles Martel, Garter, Ostrogoth, Narrator, and Speculator. But at 
last his turn came at Sandown Park, where he very cleverly disposed of Ambassador, 
Tostig, Margarine, and eight others for the Great Kingston Two- Year-Old Stakes 
worth 470sovs. Subsequently Lactantius ran unplaced in two Nursery Stakes, the 
Orleans at Sandown Park won by Killowen, and the New Nursery Plate at New- 
market won by Ornatus. When three years old, in 1890, Lactantius contended 
in no fewer than nine races, in nearly all of which he showed good form. At 
Liverpool Spring Meeting he made a bold bid for the Fifteenth Union Jack Stakes, 
being beaten by Orwell ; but this defeat he wiped out at Northampton, where he 
won the Spencer Plate of 485sovs. easily from Dame Margaret, Scotia, Ambassador, 
and four others ; and next day walked over for the Fawsley Park Handicap. At 
Sandown Park he was beaten for the Princess of Wales' Plate by L'Abbesse de 
Jouarre ; and at Newmarket he ran a deat heat with Middlesex for the Chippenham 
Stakes, beating Touchwood and Heresy. At Sandown Park June Meeting Lactantius 
won the Electric Plate of l,843sovs., beating Signorina, Lightfoot, Grand Prior, 
and Heckberry, thus showing very high form, as he did also at Ascot in the 
Wokingham Stakes, for which, carrying 7st. 91b., he ran a close third to Day Dawn 
(3yrs., 6st.) and Miss Dollar (4yrs., 7st. 71b.), having a field of twenty runners 
behind him, including Bel Demonio, Bullion, Marvel, Wise Man, St. Symphorien, 
Iddesleigh, Surbiton, etc. In 1891 Lactantius, carrying 8st. 121b., ran his last 
race at Northampton, second to the speedy Ratton (4yrs., 7st. 101b.) for the Earl 
Spencer Plate, for which Jessamy (3yrs., 7st. 21b.) was third, and six others beaten 
off. In 1892 Lactantius was put to the stud, and is the sire of Allegro, Gay Lothair, 
and Guisla, who among them placed ten races, worth 3,996sovs., to the credit of 
Mr. Leopold de Rothschild, while Crispus won lOOsovs. for Mr. Mosenthal.

71 THE HORSE-BREEDERS' HANDBOOK. 



LADAS. 

(the property of the right honourable the earl of rosebery, k.g.) 

Will he located during 1898 and folloming Seasons at Mentmore, where his subscription 
list for this year is a private one and is already filled ; but applications for future 
years may be made to Mr. J. Griffiths as above. 

Ladas (winner of the Two Thousand, Derby, Newmarket Stakes, etc.), by 
HamiJton (sire of Royal Hampton, Merry Hampton, Ayrshire, Sheen, Bushey 
Park, etc.), was bred in 1891 by the Earl of Rosebery, and is the tenth produce of 
his dam lUuminata (also dam of Kinsky and Kaunitz, both by Kisber, Star of 
Erin [in Col. North's Stud] by Master Kildare, Accumulator by Dutch Skater, 
Oriflamb by Bend Or, etc.) by Rosicrucian, also bred in 1877 by the Earl of 
Rosebery. He is a rich bay, standing slightly over 16 hands, with a beautiful 
forehand, deep brisket, splendid shoulders, good back, strong lengthy quarters, 
raid excellent bone. Ladas commenced his turf career when two years old by 
winning four races off the reel, which included the whole of his engagements in 
1893. He made his first appearance at Epsom in the Woodcote Stakes of 925sovs., 
which, with 10 to 1 against him, and ridden by A. WTiite, he won by a length and 
a half from Mecca, who finished a head in front of Glare, on whom 3 to 1 was 
betted, the other runners being Coldwell, Merry Peeress, and Schoolbook. He 
next won the Coventry Stakes of l,678sovs. at Ascot, again ridden by A. White, 
beating BuUingdon by a length and a half, who was a like distance in front of 
Vulpecula, the other runners being Arcano (fourth), Galingale, Lapley, Marguerite, 
Rays, Tights, and Van Dyck. Then, at Doncaster, Ladas won the Champagne 
Stakes easily from his only opponent Sempronius ; after which he put a seal to his 
high form by winning the Middle Park Plate in a canter from Jocasta, Sempronius, 
St. Hilaire, Kirkhill, and the colt by Wisdom out of Bramble, 5 to 1 being betted 
on him. In 1894 Ladas contended in six races, three of which were successive 
victories, while for the three remaining events he was twice second and once 
third. The Two Thousand Guineas Stakes, worth 3,5(X)sovs., first fell to him, 
beating Matchbox and Athlone, with St. Florian fourth, the other runners being 
Hornbeam, Saltador, St. Hilaire, and Speed ; then followed the Newmarket 
Stakes, worth 3,795sovs., for which he very easily defeated St. Florian, Glare, 
Galston, and Sir John Broad ; after which Ladas quite as easily appropriated the 
Derby, beating his old antagonist Matchbox by a neck with Reminder third, six 
lengths off the other runners being BuUingdon, Clwyd, Galloping Dick, and Horn- 
beam. Ladas suffered his first defeat at Newmarket for the Princess of Wales' 
Stakes, for which he was most unexpectedly overthrown by Isinglass, and was 
beaten out of the second money by BuUingdon, to whom he was, however, 
conceding 6lb, His second overthrow was effected also by Isinglass for the Eclipse 
Stakes at Sandown Park, and he suffered his third defeat for the Great St. Legtr 
Stakes at Doncaster, for which Throstle beat him by three-quarters of a length ; 
while for the Jockey Club Cup at Newmarket he was beaten by Laveno. Owing 
to the exigencies of training this was the last appearance of this great horse on 
the racecourse, as he was taken out of work in the Autumn of 189'), preparatory 
to his being put to the stud as advertised above. Ladas was trained by ^Mr. 
Matthew Dawson at Newmarket, and was ridden by John Watts for five of his 
six three-year-old engagements, and for the sixth by T. Loates. Reference is 
made to the breeding of this fine horse in the introduction, but it may be here 
remarked that the study of his pedigree, as set forth in full on the ojiposite page, 
will well repay the breeder, pointing as it does to the necessity of selection if the 
obiect is to attain success on the racecourse.

THE HORSE-BREEDERS' HANDBOOK. 



MACHEATH. 

(the property of MR. JAMES WAUGH, MEYNELL HOUSE, NEWMARKET.) 

Will he located dwring 1898 and following Seasons at the Exning Stud, ]Ve?vmarket, where 
he will be let to a limited numiber of approved mares (besides a few of his owner's) at 
'dsovs. each, and half a guinea to the Groom, All apjMcations to be made to Mr. 
James Waugh, as above. 

Macheath, by Macaroni, was bred in 1880 by Mr. W. S. Crawfurd, and is the 
fourth produce of Heather Bell (also the dam of Elderberry by Adventurer, North 
Wiltshire by Parmesan, etc.) by Stockwell, bred in 1866 by Mr. W. S. Crawfurd. 
He is a bay horse, much resembling his noted sire, possessing all his fine racing 
points and rare quality. His height is 16 hands, while he girths 6ft. 4in., and 
measures 8^in. below the knee. Macheath began his turf career when two years old, 
in 1882, at Stockbridge, where he won the Hurtsbourne Stakes of l,375sovs. by four 
lengths from St. Blaise (subsequently winner of the Derby), Adriana, and Tyndrum. 
His next appearance was at the Newmarket July Meeting, where he won the July 
Stakes of 2,030sovs. easily by a length from Fulmen (second), Tyndrum (third), 
Prince, Symphony, Duchess of Cornwall, Alcindor, and Risette, the betting being 13 
to 8 on the winner. Macheath next ran at Goodwood for the Ham Stakes of 650sovs., 
for which he beat Torpedo, his only opponent, by four lengths ; while at the same 
meeting he was only opposed by Anchorite for the Prince of Wales' Stakes of 
l,600sovs., which he won by five lengths. At Doncaster 13 to 8 was betted on Mac- 
heath for the Champagne Stakes, for which Hauteur beat him by a neck, having 
behind him Chislehurst, Prince, and Galliard. On returning to Newmarket, Beau 
Brummel beat him by a neck for the Hopeful Stakes, Export being third and four 
others beaten off. At the Newmarket First October Meeting Macheath easily appro- 
priated the Rous Memorial Stakes of 650sovs. from Adriana, Beau Brummel, Prince, 
and four other runners. At the Newmarket Second October Meetingr, carrying 9st. 
31b., he started favourite at 3 to 1 for the Middle Park Plate of ."),015sovs., which 
he won by half a length from Highland Chief (second), Chislehurst (third), and four- 
teen others, among whom were Hauteur (fourth), Energy (fifth), Adriana,Adanapaar, 
Wessand, Ladislas, etc. ; and at the same meeting he won the Post Produce Stakes of 
250sovs., 20 to 1 being betted on him. In the Houghton week 15 to 4 was betted on 
him for the Criterion Stakes of l,026sovs., which he won easily by half a length from 
Export, the other runners being Ithuriel, Bonjour, Bolero, and Cohort. So he thus 
won eight of the eleven races in which he was engaged when two years old. In 
1883, when three years old, Macheath only ran once — ^^z., when carrying 8st. 51b., he 
was unplaced for the Royal Hunt Cup in a field of twenty-two horses, to Elzevir 
(3yrs., 7st. 7ib.), with Nesscliff (oyrs., 7st. 101b.) second, and Despair (4yrs., 8st. 31b.), 
third. When four years old, carrying 8st. 101b., he ran close up for the Cambridge- 
shire Stakes, won by Florence (4yrs., 9st. lib.), the only race for which he started. 
In 1885, when five years old, Macheath ran in four races. In his first essay he ran 
unplaced behind Bendigo, Bird of Freedom, and ]\IacMahon, for the Lincolnshire 
Handicap ; but in the second, the Crawfurd Plate at Newmarket, carrying 8st. 131b., 
he ran a great horse, finishing third, close up to Ordovix (4yrs., 6st. 71b,) and Prince, 
(5yr3., 8st. r21b.) ; while in the same week he won the Babraham Plate of 800sovs., 
carrying 8st. Ulb., from Merry Prince (5yrs., Gst. 51b.), Whipper In (6yrs., 8st. 71b.), 
and fifteen other runners, among whom were Toastmaster, Scot Free, Herbitage, 
Royal Fern, Crosskeys, Doncaster Cup, Lucerne, Greenwich, etc. INIacheath ran 
his last race for the Royal Hunt Cup, for which, carrying 9st., he was beaten by 
Eastern Emperor (4yrs., 6st. 21b.) ; and in the following year was put to the stud, 
and is already the sire of several winners, who have taken thirty races to date worth 
£10,013, among whom the most distinguished include Beggar's Opera, Carrington, 
Chat Moss, Lady Caroline, Lucy Locket, Oberland, etc. Breeders ought not to 
overlook the fact that Macheath, with the exception of Masaniello, now in the 
stud of Henry C. Stephens, Esq., M.P., at Choldertou Lodge, near Salisbury, is 
the only son of the Derby winner of 1863 now living.

25 THE HORSE-BREEDERS' HANDBOOK. 

McMAHON. 

(the property of MR. Y. R. GRAHAM, YAEDLEY STUD, BIRMINGHAM.) 

Will he located during 1898 and following Seasons at the Yardley Stud, Birmingliam, 
xohere he will he let to a limited nnmher of approved mares at ^Ogs. and 1 guinea to 
the Groom. Apjjlicatum to he made, as above, to Mr. Y. R. Graham. 

MacMahon, by Macgregor (winner of the Two Thousand Guinea Stakes), was 
bred in 1880 by Mr. H. Clay, and is the second produce of his dam. Lady of 
Urrard (also dam of Amy by King Lud, Eomanby by Claremont, Warlaby by 
Syrian, her last live foal, she died in 1885) by Lord Lyon, out of Mayonaise 
(the dam of Corrie, dam of Corrie Roy, etc. ; also dam of Corine, dam of Brown 
Bess, Caroline True Love, etc., etc.), by Teddington, out of Picnic by Glaucus, 
by Partisan, the sire of Venison— so that the sire of MacMahon, Macgregor, 
and his dam Necklace by Fallow Buck, by Venison out of Sister to Plenipoten- 
tiary, then through Picnic by Glaucus, the sire of Venison, contains this hard 
and invaluable strain of blood seldom combining in any sii-e— bred in 1872 by 
Mr. W. S. Crawfurd. He is a bay, standing 15 hands 3 in., of very true formation 
and great power, with excellent bone. MacMahon made his first appearance 
on a racecourse Avhen two years old, at Thirsk, in the Fourth Great Yorkshire 
Foal Stakes, for which, in a field of twelve runners, he finished second to 
Meadow Sweet by Springfield, to whom he was conceding 7lb. ; but in his 
second effort, at Pontefract, he Avon the West Riding Champagne Stakes of 
497SOVS. from Mizpah, Sicilian, and seven others ; then at Redcar he was second 
to Ramsay for the Two-year-old Stakes, having Chiselhurst and six others behind 
him ; and he wound up the season at Doncaster by running third to Magician and 
Royal Stag for the Bradgate Park Stakes. Having been purchased by Lord 
Zetland, MacMahon, when three years old, in 1883, ran in twelve races, three of 
which he won— viz., the York Cup of IGGsovs., beating Whin Blossom, Hesperian, 
and three others ; the Newmarket October Handicap of 377sovs., beating Vista 
(winner of the Great ^Metropolitan Stakes, Great Yorkshire Handicap, etc.), 
Scobell, and two others ; and the Ancaster Welter Handicap of 207sovs., beating 
Rozelle, Dean Swift, and seven others. In 1884, Avhen four years old, MacMahon 
contended in seven races, four of which he won. He began by running a good 
fourth to Whipper-in, Arbalete, and ^Nlerry Prince, for the Babraham Stakes at 
Newmarket, in the Craven Week ; and then in July he won the Trial Stakes from 
Applause, Radames, and two others, after which Sir G. Chetwynd bought him for 
620gs. ; and in the latter's colours he next won the Welter Handicap, at Sandown 
Park, of 261SOVS., beating Hesper and four others ; at Derby Nautilus beat him 
for the Belper Plate, and he was likewise unsuccessful at Doncaster for the Rufford 
Abbey Stakes won by Bretwalda ; but he wound up the season well at Sandown 
Park by winning the Autumn Cup of 194sovs. from Woodlark, Herald, and five 
others ; and also the Free Midweight Handicap of 146sovs., beating Ironclad, 
Adanapar, and six others. In 1885, when five years old, ]\lacmahon greatly dis- 
tinguished himself by winning the Salford Borough Cup, worth 982sovs., at 
Manchester, carrying 8st. lOlb., from a field of ten horses, of Avhom Hammoom 
(4yrs., 7st. lib.) was second and Cohort (5yrs., 7st. 6lb.) third ; while at Sandown 
Park he won the Wellington Handicap of SOOsovs., carrying 8st. lllb., from Mid- 
dlethorpe(5yrs.,8st.4lb.), Winterbourne (6yrs., 6st. 7lb.), Scot Free(4yrs., 8st. 2lb., 
the Two Thousand winner), and four others. In 1866 the handicappers must have 
thought ^MacMahon had done sufficient, as they never once gave him a chance, the 
weights given him ranging from 9st. to lOst. 71b., under which he invariably ran 
well but unsuccessfully, and he happily retired from the turf to the stud as sound 
as the day he first started. In Weatherhy's Supplement to the " Stud Book " for 
1897 j\IacMahon is returned as the sire of seven colts and four fillies.

MARTAGON. 

(the property of DOUGLAS BAIRD, ESQ., AYR.) 

Will he located in 1898 and following Seasons at Southfield Stud Paddocks, NervmarJtet, 
where he will be let to a limited number of approved mares (^besides a few of his 
owjier's) at 50gs. each, and 1 guinea to the Groom. All applications to be made to 
Mr. James Ryan, Green Lodge, Newmarket. 

Martagon, by Bend Or, was bred in 1887 by Mr. James Snarry, and is the fifth 
produce of Tiger Lily (also the dam of Eisingham by Bertram, Jersey Lily by 
Beauclerc, etc.) by Macaroni, bred in 1875 by Mr. James Snarry. He is a rich bay 
■with star, standing 16 hands lin., girths 6ft. 2Jin., and measures 8^in. below the 
knee. Martagon began his racing career in 1889 at Manchester, where he ran 
second to Signorina for the Whitsuntide Plate, having behind him Ostrogoth (third), 
Riviera (fourth), and six others. His next engagement was in the Kempton Park 
Great Breeders' Stakes, where he ran unplaced to Dearest, Riviera, and Golden 
Gate ; nor did any better fortune attend him in his third and last race as a two- 
year-old, the Middle Park Plate, won by Signorina, with Le Nord and Golden 
Gate second and third. In 1890, when three years old, Martagon ran in eight 
races, always in the highest company. Twice, for the Newmarket Stakes and the 
St. Leger, he failed in his attempts to beat Memoir ; while he failed to get a place 
for the Derby won by Sainfoin. At Ascot Martagon was second to St. Serf for the 
Rous Memorial Stakes ; and at IManchester Amphion beat him by half a length for 
the Lancashire Plate, the other runners comprising Corstorphine, Orion, Memoir, 
Orvieto, Gold, St. Serf, and Simonetta. At the Newmarket First October Meeting 
he won the Triennial Produce Stakes easily from Queen of Pearls and Annoyance ; 
and at the Houghton Meeting, after being beaten by Alicante for the Cambridge, 
he ran a close second for the Three-Year-Old Free Handicap, for which St. Serf 
again beat him. In 1891, when four years old, Martagon ran his best race at 
Kempton Park for the Jubilee Stakes, for which he was beaten by Nunthorpe by 
a head only, while behind him was a field of seventeen runners, comprising Rusticus 
(third), Lord Esterling, Alexis, Imp, Surefoot, and FitzSimon ; and at the May 
Meeting, on the same course, ill-fortune also attended him for the Empress' Prize, 
Bel Demonio beating him by three-quarters of a length only, while he had behind 
him Father Confessor (third), Benvenuto, Shall We Remember, St. Benedict, and 
Harfleur. At Ascot L'Abbesse de Jouarre beat him for the Hardwicke Stakes ; 
and at Manchester he was third to Signorina and Orme for the Lancashire Plate. 
In 1892, Martagon, retaining his high form, won two of the four races for which 
he started. The speedy Lorette beat him at Newmarket for the March Stakes ; 
while for the Jubilee Stakes at Kempton Park he ran a good third to Euclid and 
High Commissioner. Then at Ascot he won the Gold Vase for the second time, 
beating Thessalian, Clarence, Nunthorpe, and another ; and at Goodwood Martagon 
terminated his turf career triumphantly by easily defeating Blue Green and Colorado 
for the Goodwood Cup. Martagon was put to the stud in 1893, and is the sire of 
Jaquemart and Hermegeld (both winners) in his first sea-son, while in the following 
he begat nine two-year-old winners, including Champs de Mars, who won six races 
worth 5,844sovs., and Cap Martin, a winner of two races worth l,582sovs., while in 
the aggregate his progeny placed 9,352sovs. to their owners' credit.

MAY DUKE. 

(the PROPERTi' OF MR. E. J. KEYLOCK, BROOME MANOR, SWINDON.) 

'Will he located during 1898 and following Seasons at the Broome Stud Farm, Swindon, 
ivliere heioill be let to a limited number of approved mares {besides a few of his owner' s) 
at iOgs. each mare. Ajjjjlication to be made to Mr. E. J. KeylocTt, as above. 

May Duke by Muncaster, was bred in 1889 by Mr. Keylock, and is the fifth 
produce of Maibaum (dam also of Tweed by Marden, sent to Germany ; Maley by 
Marden, iMinor Forfeit by Minting, etc.), by Scottish Chief, bred in 1882 by Mr- 
William Blenkiron. He is a chestnut with star and off hind heel white, standing 
16 hands in height, girths 5ft. lOin., and measures below the knee 8jin. May 
Duke ran for the first time at the York August Meeting, fourth behind El Diablo 
for the Prince of Wales' Plate of l,000sovs., the other placed horses being Priestless 
and Carmilhan, while among the remaining twelve runners were Bouthillier, 
Esmond, Cardrona, Bushey Park, and Rouge Dragon. In his second essay he 
failed to obtain a place for the Kempton Park Champion Nursery Handicap, won 
by Euclid from fourteen other runners ; nor was he more fortunate for the 
Iiiverpool Nursery, but at Derby he made a bold attempt in a big field of twenty- 
two runners to carry off the Osmaston Nursery Plate of l,000sovs., won by 
Bar-Le-Duc by Barcaldine, as he ran into the third place behind Clarence. In 
1892, May Duke ran in nine races, five of which he won. He first took the Tudor 
Plate of BSOsoYS. at Sandown Park, beating Hatfield, Certosa, and Juvenal, while 
fourteen others failed to get a place ; and he won his three subsequent engage- 
ments, which comprised the Crawford Plate of 595sovs., at Newmarket, beating 
Woolsthorpe (second). Axiom (third), and nine others ; the Payne Stakes of 
795sovs., beating Therapia, Acrobat, and five others, also at Newmarket ; and the 
Thirty-ninth Triennial of 582sovs., at Ascot, beating Versailles, Hatfield, and 
Dunure. Then followed three successive defeats, one of very high character, 
running fourth for the St. Leger behind La Fleche, Sir Hugo, and Watercress ; 
while La Flfeche beat him again for the Lancashire Stakes, and St. Angelo for the 
Select Stakes at Newmarket. He then carried off the Rose Plate of 545sovs. over 
the Caesarewitch course at Newmarket, beating Watercress, Carlosa, and two others ; 
but he subsequently failed to beat Orvieto for the All Aged Stakes on the Bretby 
Stakes Course, which terminated his labours for the year. In 1893, May Duke 
had a comparatively easy time, as he ran only in five races, one of which he won, 
namely, the Thirty-ninth Triennial, Ascot, of 582sovs., which he very easily 
appropriated from Kyle, Concealment, and Senga ; while for the Great Jubilee 
Stakes, carrying 8st. 41b., he ran Orvieto (5yrs., 9st. 51b.) to half a length, having 
Simonian, Euclid, Gangway, Son of a Gun, and four others behind him. May 
Duke ran his last race at Aintree, for the Liverpool Autumn Cup, for which 
carrying 8st. 51b., he and ten others were defeated by La Fleche ; after which he 
was withdrawn from the turf to the stud, and his yearlings and foals hold out 
great promise of his becoming a successful sire, and perpetuating the line of 
Doncaster through his sire Jluncaster, who had a most successful, but unhappily a 
too brief, career at the stud.

MIMIC. 

'the property of WALLACE JOHNSTONE, ESQ., 3 ST. JAMES'S STREET, PICCADILLY, 

LONDON.) 

Will le located (hiring 1898 and folloioing Seasons at the Heath Stvd Farm, next the 
July Cmirse, IS'eivmarliet, where he tvill cover a few yxiMic foaling mares (besides a few 
of his owner's) at d5gs. each and 1 guinea to the Groom. Suiscrijrtions to he taken 
from the Manager, Blood Stock Offices, 32, St. James's Street, London, S. W. 

Mimic by Galopin was bred in 1893, at Sledmere, by Sir Tatton Sykes, and is the 
first produce of his dam Mimi, winner of the Oaks (also dam of St. Simonmimi 
and a two-year-old colt by St. Simon), by Barcaldine, bred in 1888 also by Sir 
Tatton Sykes. He is a rich bay with black points and small star, very handsome 
and of true formation, standing 16^ hands, girths 6ft., and measures 8^in. below 
the knee. Having been purchased for a big figure by Mr. John Dawson at the sale, 
of Sir Tatton Sykes' yearlings. Mimic, who was trained at Warren House, New- 
market, made his first appearance in public at the Royal Meeting in 1895, when he 
made one of a field of eleven runners for the New Stakes, won by a head by Roque- 
brune by St. Simon from Shaddock, with Thais a good third. In his second 
attempt, at Sandown Park, Mimic was more fortunate, as he achieved a very easy 
victory for the third Clarence and Avondale Stakes, beating Curzon by two lengths, 
Utica (who started favourite at 13 to 8) being third, beaten a length-and-a-half, 
the other runners being Prince Simon and Pennsylvania. At Stockbridge, Mimic, 
in a field of five runners for the Hurstbourne Stakes, divided favouritism with 
Lord Zetland's Jolly Boat by Panzerschiff, who beat him after a fine race by a neck, 
the other runners being Dunrobin (third), Eisteddfod, and Runnelstone. Mimic 
next contested the Champagne Stakes at Doncaster, in which he showed very high 
form by running second to Omladina by Royal Hampton, having behind him Clares 
(third). Jolly Boat, Santa Maura, Oronsay, and Canterbury Pilgrim. At the New- 
market Second October Meeting he formed one of a field of twelve runners for the 
Middle Park Plate, for which St. Frusquin effected the overthrow of the favourite 
Persimmon who finished third, four lengths behind Omladina who was second, beaten 
half-a-length. Mimic finished close up among the ruck, and having, as above 
recorded, won one good race and been second for two other valuable prizes, he was 
accorded the welter weight of 9st. for the Two-year-old Free Handicap Sweepstakes 
of lOOsovs. each on the Bretby Stakes Course (Gfur.), run in the Houghton "Week, 
for which he accepted, and in a field of nine runners ran a gallant third to the colt 
by Galopin out of Hall Mark, and Vitellius, giving the winner 161b., and to Yitel- 
lius 181b., while behind him were Galeazzo, Love Wisely. Prince Barcaldine 
(severally getting 21b., 111b., and 201b.), and three others. This Avas a great per- 
formance, as the judge's verdict was, "three-quarters of a length, and a head between 
second and third," and showed there was a great future before Mimic ; but unfor- 
tunately he injured a sinew in that contest, which compelled his withdrawal to the 
stud, where he is bound to command the patronage of breeders who have mares 
suitably bred to nick with the many fine winning strains of blood in his pedigree, 
as may be seen on the opposite page.

MORGLAY. 

(the property op LEOPOLD DE ROTHSCHILD, ESQ., ASCOTT, BUCKINGHAMSHIRE.) 

Will he located during 1898 and following SeasoTis at Southcourt Stud Farm, Leighton 
Buzzard, where he will be let to a limited number of approved mares {besides a few of 
his owner's) at \^gs., and 1 guinea to the Groom. All applications to be made to 
Mr. E. Burroughs, as above. 

MoRGLAY, by Sir Bevys (winner of the Derby), was bred in 1886 by Mr. Leopold 
de Rothschild, and is the third produce of Pink (also the dam of Florizel by 
Sir Bevys, and Bouvardia, also by Sir Bevys, who was sent to Buenos Ayres in 
1888, covered by Middlethorpe) by Struan, bred in 1879 by Mr. T. Lant. He 
is black, with star, stands 15 hands 3jin., girths 6ft. 2in., and measures 8|in. 
below the knee, being a thick, lengthy horse, full of quality, and with excellent 
bone. Morglay in 1888, when two years old, ran only once — viz., at the Newmarket 
Houghton Meeting, when he comprised one of a field of nine runners for a Maiden 
Plate won by King Herod by Kingcraft. In 1889 Morglay contended in seven 
races, four of which he won — viz., the Chippenham Stakes, at Newmarket First 
Spring Meeting, for which he beat Royal Star, Ste. Agatha, and Rigadoon ; the 
Payne Stakes of G50sovs., beating Lord George, El Dorado, HelvelljTi, Roslin, 
Testator, Krishna, .Workington, and Lancashire Lad, at the Newmarket Second 
Spring Meeting ; the Gold Vase, at Ascot, beating Curraghmore and Claymore ; and 
the day following, the Ascot Derby Stakes of l,150sovs., beating Miguel and Ever- 
green — an excellent performance considering the high form shown by Miguel in 
running second to Donovan for both the Derby and St. Leger. The other races in 
which Morglay contended were the Esher Stakes, at Sandown Park, for which, 
in a field of nine runners, he was second to Kingfisher ; The Derby Stakes, at 
Epsom, unplaced to Donovan ; and the St. George's Stakes, at Liverpool, second 
to Theophilus, having behind him Duncraggan and L'Avare, which was the last 
appearance on a racecourse of this handsome black son of Sir Bevys. In 1892 
he was put to the stud at Southcourt Paddocks, Leighton Buzzard, and is already 
the sire of Delicacy, Nervi, and Pie Powder, from the few mares put to him ; while 
in Weathcrhy' s Supplement to the " Stud Book " for 1897 he is returned as the sire 
of seven foals — three colts and four fillies.

MORION. 

(the property op his grace the duke of DEVONSHIRE.) 

Will he located during 1898 and follorvijig Seasons at the Egerton Stud Paddocks, New. 
market, where he will be let to a limited number of approved mares {besides a few of 
his awner's) at lOOgs. each, and 1 guinea to the Groom. Application to be made to 
Mr. B. T. Marsh, as above. 

Morion, by Barcaldine, was bred in 1887 by His Grace the Duke of Devonshire, 
and is the fifth produce of Chaplet (also dam of Penance by Hermit, Winkfield by 
Barcaldine, etc.) by Beadsman, bred in 1872 by Sir Joseph Hawley. He is a 
remarkably handsome brown horse, combining the most perfect symmetry with 
power and quality. His height is 16 hands, while he girths 6ft. 4in„ and measures 
nearly 9in. below the knee. Morion began racing at the York August Meeting, 
1889, when two years old, in the Great Breeders' Convivial Produce Stakes, won 
by Right Away ; and he did not appear in public again until October, at New- 
market, where he won the Severals Plate, value 390gs., beating Westminster, 
Battle- Axe, and Likander. When three years old, in 1890, Morion contended in 
eight races, no fewer than seven of which he won. He commenced at the New- 
market Craven Meeting by winning the Craven Stakes of 707sovs., beating Wildfire, 
Touchwood, Sydenham, Panthino, Pluie d'Or, Carrick, and Hayraddin. This 
victory he followed up at the First Spring Meeting by winning the Payne Stakes 
of 775sovs. easily, by two lengths, from Blue Green (second), Bel Demonio (third), 
Minnedosa, Circassian, Filibustier, and Lusignan. But a greater victory awaited 
him at Ascot, where his performance at once stamped him as a great horse, as he 
won the Royal Hunt Cup of l,250sovs. easily by three lengths, beating Philomel 
(second), Miss Dollar (third), Lord George (fourth), and twenty others, including 
Wishing Gate, Theophilus, Shimmer, Johnny Morgan, Sabina, Swift, Imp, St. Kieran, 
Reve d'Or, etc. At the Newmarket July Meeting he very easily disposed of Sheen, 
his only opponent, for the Bunbury Plate ; and at the same meeting, being only 
opposed by Tom Crib in the Reach Plate, he placed that event to his noble owner's 
credit. The next appearance of Morion was at Derby in the Breeders' St. Leger 
of 954sovs., for which he easily defeated Ponza, Wildfire, Compassion, and Madame 
Royale. At the Newmarket First October Meeting he very easily disposed of Blue 
Green and Alloway, his only opponents, for the Great Foal Stakes, value 765sovs. ; 
and in the Houghton week, being burdened with 8st. 131b., he ran unplaced for 
the Cambridgeshire, won by Alicante (3yrs., 7st. 121b.), which was his last per- 
formance as a three-year-old. When four years old, in 1891, Morion started 
favourite for the Gold Cup, value l,420sovs., at Ascot, which he won easily, beating 
Queen's Birthday, Gonsalvo, Ragimunde, and Mons Meg. He next ran for the 
Triennial Produce Stakes of 639sovs. at the Newmarket First October Meeting, for 
which his only opponent was Star, whom, with 10 to 1 on him, he beat easily by 
eight lengths. At the Second October Meeting, carrying 9st. 71b., he comprised 
one of the twenty-four runners for the Cesarewitch, won by Ragimunde (3yrs., 
6st. 101b.). In the Houghton week Morion terminated his brilliant turf career by 
beating Patrick Blue (3yrs.), giving him 141b., for the Jockey Club Cup, but was 
disqualified for boring. Morion was put to the stud in 1892, and is returned in 
Wealherhy's Supplement to the "Stud Book," 1897, as the sire of twenty-six foals 
(nine colts and seventeen fillies), three of which are dead.

OAKWOOD. 

(the property of J. S. CURTIS, ESQ., LEESBURG, VIRGINIA, U.S.A.) 

Will "be located during the Season of 1898, at Mayfield Stud Farm, near Leeshurg, where 
he icill serve a limited number of a])proved mares {besides a few of his owner's') at 
§100 each meire. Application to be made to the Manager, Mayfield Stud Farm, P. 0- 
Box 31, Leesburg, Virginia, U.S.A. 

Garwood by Sheen is the fifth produce of his dam Rosewood (bred in 1883 by the ' 
Earl of Scarbrough) by Silvester, and was bred by the Duke of Hamilton in 1892. 
He is a fine upstanding brown horse about 16 hands high, with good sound legs, 
plenty of length of body and the usual hind quarters of the Hampton family. 
Owing to the retirement of his present owner (who purchased him from Mr. Abe 
Bailey after the Johannesburg races in December 189G) from the South African 
turf, he has been sent to the stud while still in the possession of his full racing 
powers. He is descended from the very best staying families, and is particularly 
adapted to getting long-distance horses, the great want of the present day. 
Oakwood's only appearance as a two-year-old was in 1894 in the First October 
Two- Year-Old Stakes at Newmarket, for which he ran in the colours of his breeder, 
the Duke of Hamilton. In this race (carrying 8st. 51b.) he was beaten by The Owl 
(9st. lib.), among the other runners being Wise Virgin and Miss Vi. When three 
years old, in 1895, Oakwood ran once more in England — viz., for the Kempton Park 
Easter Handicap (^m.), for which, carrying 6st. 81b., he was beaten by Clorane 
(4yrs., 8st. 91b.), among the other runnei's being Rimini (4yrs., 8st. 71b.), Golden 
Slipper (5yrs., 7st. 71b.), and St. Mark (4yrs., 6st. 121b.) ; after which he was 
purchased for Mr. Abe Bailey, of Johannesburg, and sent to South Africa. In the 
Boer country Oakwood ran seventeen times in two years, chiefly at Johannesburg 
and Pretoria, and during bis career was first four times, second four times, third 
once, and unplaced eight times. He won in all £1,450, finishing his racing career in 
June 1897 by winning for his present owner the Farewell Handicap, worth £250. 
The race in which Oakwood most distinguished himself was the Goldfields 
Handicap (l|m.), run at Johannesberg December 23rd, 1896, and worth £775 
to the winner. This event he won, carrying 7st. 21b. ; Lammas by Candlemas 
(4yrs., 9st. 31b.) being second, and Campanajo by Isobar (4yrs., 9st.) third, while 
the others he beat were Royal Stag by Highland Chief (3yrs., 8st. 91b.), Lord 
Ullin by Beau Brummel (4yrs., 8st. 71b.), St. Mark by Timothy (5yrs., Sst.), 
Johnnie by Kendal (3yrs., 7st. 131b.), Languid by Waterford (4yrs., 7st. 121b.), 
Fiorita (3yrs., 7st. 71b.), and the Australian Buccaneer (5yrs., 7st. 31b.). The betting 
was 3 to 1 against St. Mark, 4 to 1 against Campanajo, 9 to 2 against Lammas, 5 to 1 
against Oakwood, 7 to 1 each against Johnnie and Languid, 12 to 1 against Lord 
Ullin, and 100 to 5 against any other. Campanajo, who belonged to the same 
owner, IMr. Abe Bailey, made the pace very warm immediately after starting, and 
soon Oakwood was left several lengths behind ; and thus they ran with little 
alteration to the hill, where Buccaneer was done with, and Oakwood began to make 
up ground. On reaching the straight (4 furlongs from home) Campanajo had shot 
his bolt, and then Oakwood went to the front, with Lammas at his heels, their 
nearest attendants being Johnnie and Languid. About a furlong from home 
Johnnie was beaten, and though Lammas struggled on gamely, he could not get up, 
and Oakwood won in a canter by two lengths, a length separating second and third, 
with Languid fourth. There is in Oakwood a splendid combination of the principal 
winning blood of the day, there being in him six strains of Touchstone, five of 
Birdcatcher, seven of Blacklock, three of Pocahontas, and two of Melbourne, as 
may be seen on the opposite page.

OCEAN WAVE AND CHELSEA. 

(the property of T. ROBINSON, ESQ., HIGH WYCOMBE, BUCKS.) 

Will he located during the Season 1898, at High Wycombe, Bucks, where Ocean Wave 
will be let to thirty aj)proved mares (besides a few of his owner's'), at iOgs. each mare, 
and 1 guinea to the Groom. Apj)lication to be made, as above, to Mr. Robinson, or the 
Stud Groom. 

Ocean Wave, by See Saw, bred in 1883 by Mr. T. Robinson, is the fifth produce 
of Par Excellence (also dam of Supremacy by Touchet) by Stockwell, bred in 
1869 by Mr. R. C. Naylor, at Kelmarsh Hall, Northampton. He is a dark chestnut 
with a very small star in his forehead, the only white. His height ia 16 hands, 
girth 6 feet 4 inches, and he measures 8j inches below the knee, being quite the 
Stockwell stamp — very powerful indeed over the loins, with strong lengthy quarters, 
clean well-turned hocks, and great propelling power. Owing to an accident befalling 
him when a foal, occasioned by his rushing through a half-opened gate, the fasten- 
ing of which caught him under the near forearm, severing the muscles, Ocean Wave 
was never trained, but held over by Mr. Robinson, who bred him, for the stud. A 
son of See Saw (who was more esteemed by the late General Peel, an excellent judge 
of breeding, than any young sire of his day). Ocean Wave, though very sparingly 
patronised by breeders, has already achieved an almost phenomenal success at the 
stud, being the sire of Curzon (second for the Derby), Billow (winner of the Ascot 
Stakes), Horizon, Crestfallen, Oceano, Dancing-Wave, North Sea, Sea Wall, Sea 
Wave, Mock Turtle, Horatia, Ebbing Tide, and many other winners. 

Besides Ocean Wave, breeders can have, at High Wycombe, the service of another 
very successful sire, Chelsea by Cremorne out of Dalham Lass by Cathedral (one 
of Newminster's best sons), who will be let to thirty mares at lOgs. each, and 
1 guinea to the Groom. He is a hard-coloured bay horse, with black points and a 
small star in his forehead. He stands 15 hands 3 inches, girths 6 feet 3 inches, and 
measures 8 inches below the knee, while he bears a striking resemblance to his sire, 
Cremorne. This fact, independent of his being a good runner, ought to insure him 
plenty of patronage, for it will be remembered that he ran prominently in 
Ormonde's Derby, and next day held a forward place in the contest for the Epsom 
Grand Prize won by Candlemas, when run into and so severely cut that he was 
confined to the stable for five weeks. Notwithstanding this, he won the Sussex 
Stakes at Goodwood, beating St. Mirin, Mephisto, Candlemas, St. Michael, and St. 
George ; while, the week following, he won the Brighton Stakes, carrying 8st. 121b., 
from Pizarro, 5yrs., 8st. 21b., Palmistry, 4yrs., 6st. 41b., and Winter Cherry, 3yrs., 
7st, 101b. Chelsea is already the sire of several winners, including Antique, 
Chekoa, Crystalline, Candace, Carlisle, Chelsea Duchess, Doulton, Poppyland, 
Primacy, etc., and breeders need hardly be reminded that Chelsea is, so far, the most 
successful son of Cremorne (winner of the Derby and Grand Prix of Paris) now at 
the stud.

and 1 guinea to the Groom. Aj)plication to be made, as above, to Mr. Richard 
Chapman, Stud Groom. 

Orme, by Ormonde (winner of the Triple Crown 1886), was bred in 1889 by the 
Duke of Westminster, at Eaton, and is the fifth produce of Angelica (also dam of 
Mezzotint by Coeruleus, and Blue Green, also by Coeruleus) by Galopin, bred in 1879 
by Prince Batthyany. He is a bay, standing fully 16 hands high, girths 6ft. 4iin., 
and measures S^in. below the knee, with large star and no other white . He bears 
considerable likeness to his sire, but is framed on a rather smaller scale, with grand 
propelling power. Orme commenced his turf career at Goodwood in 1891, when two 
yeai's old, by winning the Richmond Stakes of l,062sovs. from the speedy Flyaway, 
Belief ontaine, Bushey Park, Posy, Lucellum, Hyeres, and Ben Avon ; while at the 
same meeting the rich Prince of Wales' Stakes, worth 2,800sovs., fell to him, beating 
Dunure, Galeopsis, Posy, Glen Dye, and Le Main. Orme next ran at Manchester, 
second to Signorina, for the Lancashire Plate, having behind him Martagon (third), 
Alicante, Gouverneur, Llanthony, Peter Flower, Broad Corrie, and Biddy Fowler. 
At the Newmarket First October Meeting, carrying 9st. 31b., he won the Middle 
Park Plate of 2,505sovs. from El Diablo, Gantlet, Sir Hugo, St. Angelo, Polyglot, 
Rent Payer, Silvermint, Hatfield, and Mascarille ; and at the Houghton Meeting he 
again beat El Diablo and Hatfield for the Dewhurst Plate ; while, with 100 to 3 
betted on him, he wound up this series of splendid performances by beating 
Esmond, Lucellum, and Chloris, for the Home Bred Post Foal Stakes. In 1892, a 
dastardly attempt having been made to poison Orme, be was too ill to compete for 
either the Two Thousand or Derby (won respectively by Bonavista and Sir Hugo) ; 
but on Friday, July 15th, he ran for the first time as a three-year-old at Sandown 
Park for the Eclipse Stakes, worth 9,105sovs., which he won, beating Orvieto, 
St. Damien, Certosa, Gouverneur, Llanthony, and Rouge Dragon. The next appear- 
ance of Orme that year was at Goodwood, where he won the Sussex Stakes of 
822sovs. easily from Watercress, Bushey Park, Drogo, Flank March, and Adoration ; 
and he ran well, though unplaced, for the Doncaster St. Leger. Orme now achieved 
four successive victories. At Newmarket, in September, he won the Great Foal 
Stakes easily from Versailles, Dunure, Certosa, and Boyne Water ; whilst he won 
the Champion Stakes by two lengths from the four-year-old Orvieto at Newmarket 
in October ; and the Limekiln Stakes of 82Isovs. at the Second October Meeting as 
easily from El Diablo, Sir Hugo, and two others ; whilst in the Cambridgeshire 
week he took the Subscription Stakes of 400sovs. in a canter from Porridge, Bel 
Demonio, Lady Lena, and Perigord. In 1893 Orme ran his first race when four 
years old for the Rous Memorial Stakes at Ascot, which he won easily from Lady 
Lena, his only opponent ; and his second appearance was at the Sandown Park 
Summer Meeting for the Eclipse Stakes, worth 9,902sovs., which he won for the 
second time from Medecis, La Fleche, Silene, May Duke, and El Diablo. Then, at 
Goodwood, Orme again beat La Fleche, Watercress, and Royal Harry, for the Gordon 
Stakes ; and he ran his last race at the Newmarket Houghton Meeting, where, in the 
Limekiln Stakes, he failed in his attempt to give Childwick 2st. 61b., being defeated 
by three-quarters of a length only, making a splendid termination to a most brilliant 
turf career. He is returned in 1897 as the sire of twenty-five foals (now yearlings), 
eleven colts and fourteen fillies, three of whom died in foaling.

THE HORSE-BREEDERS' HANDBOOK. 



ORVIETO. 

(the PKOPERTY of BTTRDETT COUTTB, ESQ., M.P., HOLLY LODGE, HIGHGATE.) 
Will he located during 1898 and enming Seasons at Mr. Burdett Coutts' Newmarket Stud 
Farm, tvhere he mill cover a limited numler of approved mares (besides a few of his 
onmer's) at CiOgs. each mare, and 1 guinea to the Groom. AjjpUcation to he made to 
the Stud Groom, as above. 
Orvieto, by Bend Or, was bred in 1888 by Mr. J. H. Houldsworth, and is the 
sixth produce of his dam Napoli (also dam of Neapolis and Ponza, both by Spring- 
field, etc.), bred in 1878 also by Mr. J. H. Houldsworth. He is a bay, with black 
points, standing 16 hands, with the most perfect shoulders, powerful back and 
quarters, big girth, bone over eight inches, and the soundest of feet ; while he is a 
splendid mover in all his paces, is perfectly sound, and has a grand constitution, all 
of which attributes were well tested on the racecourse, as he ran in no fewer than 
twenty-nine races, thirteen of which he won, was second in seven, and placed third 
in two. This record is not easily matched, and it is impossible in the limit of a 
page to give all Orvieto's performances in detail. He commenced his turf career 
in 1890 at Manchester in the rich Whitsuntide Plate, for which he started a warm 
favourite at 11 to 8 against him, and was rather unlucky to have been defeated by 
Eeverend by a neck, with St. Cyr beaten three-quarters of a length, the other 
runners being Sheldrake, Grouse Moor, Fleur d'Or, Caithness, and Chloridia. 
Orvieto ran his second race on the Eoyal Course at Ascot, where he easily defeated 
Grace Conroy (second), Noverre (third), and seven others, including Sir Frederick 
Roberts, for the New Stakes, worth 1979sovs. And then a richer prize, the Port- 
land Stakes of 2948sovs. at Leicester, fell to him, beating Peter Flower (second), 
Reverend (third); while among the other runners were Gouverneur, Enniskillen, 
Martinhurst, Noverre, Simonian, Simon de Montfort, and Gavotte. At the New- 
market July Meeting he won the Chesterfield Stakes of SlOsovs. from Pretendant 
II., his only opponent; but he next suffered an unexpected overthrow at Doncaster 
for the Champion Stakes, being rather cleverly defeated by the French filly. Haute 
Soane. At the Manchester September Meeting he was beaten by Amphion for 
the Great Lancashire Plate, and at the Newmarket Second October Meeting 
Gouverneur turned the tables on him by beating him for the Middle Park Plate. 
In 1891, when three years old, Orvieto had a very busy time of it, as he contended 
in thirteen races, seven of which he won — viz., the Midsummer Plate of 750sovs., 
beating Blavatsky (second), DereUct (third), and four others at the Newmarket 
July Meeting ; the Sussex Stakes of 777sovs. at Goodwood, beating Orion (second), 
Dorcas (third), and four others at Goodwood ; the Great Yorkshire Stakes of 
672sovs., beating Hudson, at York ; the Doncaster Stakes of 630sovs. on the 
Doncaster Town Moor ; the Newmarket St. Leger of 275sovs. at the Newmarket 
First October Meeting ; the Newmarket Derby of 252sovs. at the Newmarket 
Second October Meeting ; and the Three-year-old Free Handicap of 650sovs. at 
the same Meeting ; at which he further distinguished himself by running a close 
third to Orion and Bel Demonio for the Champion Plate. In 1892, when four 
years old, Orvieto ran in six races, two of which he won — viz., the Rous Memorial 
Stakes of 940sovs. on the Royal Course at Ascot, beating Le Nord, Rouge Dragon, 
Simonian, and Ben Avon ; and the All-Aged Stakes of 215sovs. at the Newmarket 
Second October Meeting. His other races included the Eclipse Stakes at Sandown 
Park, for which, carrying 9st. 131b., he was second to Orme, having behind him 
St. Damien (3yrs., 9st. lib.), Gouverneur (4yrs., 9st. 131b.), and three others ; the 
Great Lancashire Plate at Manchester, for which he was second to La Fleche, 
having behind him Llanthony, El Diablo, and seven others. In 1893 Orvieto, 
retaining his high form into his fifth year, won the Jubilee Stakes of 2650sovs. at 
Kempton Park, carrying 9st. 51b. ; and, although 10 to 1 was betted against him, 
defeated May Duke (4yrs., 8st. 41b.) second, Simonian (5yrs., 7st. 131b.) third, and 
eight others, including the favourite, Gangway (3yrs., 7st. 31b.), Evicted (4yrs., 
8st. 81b.), and Leominster (3yrs., 6st. 81b.). At Ascot Marcion beat him for the 
Gold Cup ; and at the Newmarket First July Meeting, carrying lOst. 61b., he was 
second, beaten a length and a half by Cabin Boy (4yrs., 9st. 81b.), with which race 
terminated the racing career of Orvieto, who might have continued on the turf 
another season or two, had not Mr. Burdett Coutts, with the object of saving him 
for the stud, purchased him for 5000gs., a sum he is sure to recoup, although for 
the present and ensuing season his fee has been fixed at the moderate figure of 
50 guineas. Altogether Orvieto won for Mr. Houldsworth £13,448 in stakes. He 
is returned in 1897 as the sire of twenty-three foals (now yearlings), eight colts and 
fifteen fillies, all living.

95 THE HORSE-BREEDERS' HANDBOOK. 



PERSIMMON. 

(the property of his royal highness the prince of "WALES, K.G. 
SANDRINGHAM, NORFOLK.) 

Will he located during 1898 and following Seasons at the Sandringham Stnd Paddocks, 
where his suhscription at ZOOgs. each mare, and 1 guinea Groom's fee, is full for 1898 
and two folloioing seasons, hut suhscriptions may he hooked for 1901. Application to 
he made to Lord 3Iarcus Beresford, 32, St. James' Street. 

Persimmon (winner of the " Dual Crown "), by St. Simon, was bred in 1892 by His 
Royal Highness the Prince of Wales, and is the fourth produce of his dam 
Perdita II. (dam also of Derelict and Barracouta both by Barcaldine, Florizel II. 
by St. Simon, etc.") by Hampton, bred in 1881 by Lord Cawdor. He is a rich bay 
with black points, his only marking being a little white on the inside of his off hind 
fetlock. His height is 16 hands 2 inches, girth 6ft. 3in., and his measurement 
below the knee 8|in., while his rein is 50in., and length from hip to hock 
44^in. — a very grand, true-shaped horse in every point, as may be seen in his 
portrait forming the frontispiece of this work. Persimmon commenced his brief 
but brilliant turf career in 1895, when two years old, at Ascot, where he won the 
Coventry Stakes of l,724sovs., beating Iiis eight opponents, Meli Melo by Melanion 
(second). Dynamo by Peter (third), Gulistan by Brag (fourth), Rampion, Enjoyment, 
Snowy Corrie, and Eisteddfod easily ; and this success he followed up at Goodwood 
by appropriating the Richmond Stakes from Champfleurie by SpringBeld (second), 
His Reverence by St. Simon (third). Spook, and Devone, a victory ho achieved 
still more easily. Persimmon next ran for the Middle Park Plate for which he 
started a warm favourite at 2 to 1 in a field of twelve runners, but performed very 
disappointingly, as St. Frusquin won easily by half a length, Omladina being 
second, four lengths in front of Persimmon, who just prior to the race had 
commenced coughing and, going amiss, ran no more during the remainder of 
the season. In 1896 the good effects of this rest, which was continued up to the 
Derby, was seen by the great victory Persimmon achieved for that event ; and the 
scene that followed, marking so well the immense popularity of his royal owner, 
will be ever memorable in turf annals. The contest lay entirely between St. 
Frusquin, on whom odds of 13 to 8 were betted at starting, and the Prince's horse, 
against whom 5 to 1 was betted, and who, after a desperate race won by a neck. 
In July, at Newmarket, the pair met again in the Princess of Wales' Stakes of 
lOjOOOsovs., over a shorter course (the Bunbury mile), and here the contest lay again 
between them, but Persimmon having to give St. Frusquin 31b., was defeated by 
half a length. For the St. Leger Persimmon achieved a very easy victory over 
Labrador (second), Rampion (third), and four others ; and he wound up the season 
by almost as easily appropriating the Jockey Club Stakes from Sir Visto (second), 
Laveno (third), and seven others. In 1897 Persimmon won the Ascot Gold Cup, in 
a canter, from Winkfield's Pride, Love Wisely, and Limasol ; and then appropriated 
the Eclipse Stakes, beating Velasquez, Bay Ronald, Bradwardine, and Be'ato ; after 
which he was withdrawn from the turf to the stud.

97 THE HORSE-BREEDERS' HANDBOOK. 



PETROS. 

(the property of W. R. REID, ESQ., GOROIE, EDINBURGH.) 

Will he located during 1898 and folloicing Seasons at the Blink Bonny Stud, 3falton, 
Torks, ivhere he will be let to a limited mimber of mares (besides a few of his owners') 
at 30^5. each, and 1 gioinea to the Groom. Ajjplication to he made to Mr. Miles 
I' Anson, as above, or to the Stud Groom. 

Petros (full brother to St. Serf), by St. Simon, was bred in 1890 by the Duchess 
of Montrose, and is the fifth produce of his dam Feronia (dam also of April Fool 
by Wenlock, Hamptonia by Hampton, St. Serf by St. Simon, etc.), by Thormanby, 
bred in 1868 by Mr. Jackson. He is a dark bay horse, with white star and snip, 
and stands 15 hands 3in., girths 6£t., and measures S^in. below the knee. 
Petros made his first and only appearance when two years old for the Newmarket 
Two-Year-Old Plate of 200sovs., at the First Spring Meeting 1892, for which, in 
company with Mrs. Butterwick, Fatherless, and six others, he ran unplaced to 
Cornwall by Springfield, who beat Sweet Laura by a head, with Prank a bad third- 
In 1893 he contended in six races, one of which he won — viz., the Walton Welter 
Handicap (6fur.), carrying 9st. 41b., at the Liverpool Autumn Meeting, beating 
Remittance (Byrs., 9st. 91b.), Beaulieiu II. (3yrs., 9st. 91b.), Odour (4yrs., 9st. 71b.), 
and three others ; after which he was sold to Mr. W. R. Reid, in whose colours he 
was twice unsuccessful. In 1894 Petros had a busy time, as he ran in ten races, but 
only got his head first in one engagement, at Carlisle, for the Lowther Handicap of 
200sovs. (6fur.), which, carrying 8st. 12Ib., he won by a neck from Lord of the 
Manor (aged, 9st. 21b.), with the colt of St. Honorat — Maremma a bad third, the 
other runners being Wrinkles (aged, lOst. lib.), and the filly by Highland Chief— 
Sweet Mart (3yrs., 8st.). For the Caledonian Hunt Handicap of 2G0sovs. (Im.), 
he finished a good third to Antonio Pierri (3yrs., 7st. 71b.), by Kendal, and Evelyn 
(4yrs., 7st. 41b.) ; and again at Hamilton Park he carried 8st. 81b. into the third place 
for the Hamilton Park Handicap (Im.), behind Horton by Charibert (aged, 
8st. 101b.), and Blue Bell (aged, 8st. 21b.). Petros was put to the stud in the fol- 
lowing year, and his young stock hold out every promise of his becoming a most 
succesful stallion and perpetuating (like his full brother St. Serf) the great fame 
of his sire St. Simon. Several good mares are in foal to him, and his two-year-olds 
will run for the first time this year (1898).

where he will he let to a limited number of approved mares {besides a few of his 
owner s) at Ibgs, each mare. Application to he made as above to Mr. Y. R. Graham. 

Pioneer, by Galopin (winner of the Derby, 1875, and sire of St. Simon, etc.), 
was bred in 1886 by Mr. J. C. Hill, and is the fifth produce of his dam Moorhen 
(also dam of Osprey by Highborn, Gallinule by Isonomy, etc.) by Hermit, bred 
in 1873 by Lord Hartington. He is a brown horse, standing 16 hands 1 inch, of 
fine symmetry and great power, with capital bone and sound open feet. Pioneer 
having been purchased at a big figure by Mr. Abington, did not commence his 
racing career until late in 1888, and then, owing to training exigencies, it was only 
of short duration, but yet long enough to show in public the high form this grand- 
looking son of Galopin was known to possess at home. In the aforesaid year he 
ran but once — viz., for the Doveridge Two-year-old Stakes of 500sovs. at the 
Derby November Meeting, which he won in a canter, beating the Duke of 
Westminster's Prebend by Bend Or, Mr. H. Milner's Australia by Hermit, and 
Mr. T. Jennings' George by Poulet. In 1889, when three years old, he commenced 
the season by running second to Donovan at Leicester for the Prince of Wales' 
Stakes, worth ll,000sovs., in which he had a field of fifteen runners behind him, 
including Enthusiast, Gay Hampton, Royal Star, Minthe, etc. But, for the Two 
Thousand, Enthusiast turned the tables on both Donovan and Pioneer, the con- 
test throughout being confined to the three in a field of nine runners. Enthusiast 
winning by a head from Donovan, who beat Pioneer by three-quarters of a length. 
For the Derby Pioneer once more reversed positions with Enthusiast, but was again 
defeated by Donovan, from whom he was separated by Miguel and El Dorado, 
finishing fourth. But at Ascot, Pioneer's time at length came, as he won the rich 
St. James' Palace Stakes, worth l,800sovs., in a canter from Ben Strome, Svdft, 
Gold, Antibes, and two others. Then, for the Hardwicke Stakes, Pioneer was 
beaten by Gulliver, and at Ne-wmarket he failed to beat Antibes, giving that smart 
filly 12lb. for the Midsummer Plate ; for the Great Lancaster Plate Donovan again 
beat him, and again in his last race for the year he was destined to defeat, as 
Wishing-Gate beat him for the Eleventh Great Foal Stakes at Newnuarket. In 
1890 Pioneer ran on only two occasions — viz., for the City and Suburban, for 
which, carrying 7st. lOlb., he started favourite at 5 to 2, but was defeated by the 
Duke of Beaufort's Reve d'Or (6yrs., 7st. 13lb.), finishing fourth behind Vasistas 
(4yrs., 8st.) and Workington (4yrs., 7st. 13lb.) ; and for the Stewards' Cup at 
Goodwood, for which, carrying 8st. 4lb., he ran unplaced to Lord Hartington's 
Marvel (3yrs., 7st. 4lb.). Pioneer was then withdrawn from the racecourse, and 
covered a few mares in 1891, but was not formally put to the stud until purchased 
by his present owner, who has bred from him a goodly number of very highly 
promising young stock, evidenced by some of the figures realised by his yearlings. 
Murchiston, Tumbler, and several other winners are his first season's progeny.

Albans, where he will be let to a limited member of approved mares (besides a few 
of his owner^s). All applications to be made to Mr. Tom Castle, as above. 

Prince Hampton, by Royal Hampton, was bred in 1888 by Sir J. Blundell Maple, 
and is the first produce of Pibroch (also the dam of Chibbie by Royal Hampton,

He is a rich bay horse of rare quality with black points, star and snip, standing 
IG hands high, girths 6ft. 3in., and measures 8Jin. below the knee. Prince Hampton 
commenced his racing career in 1890, when two years old, at Leicester, when he 
was second to Friar Lubin for the Excelsior Stakes ; and subsequently that 
vear ran in seven other two-year-old races, one of which he won — viz., the 
John O'Gaunt Plate at the Manchester May Meeting, beating Susiana, Ragwort, 
Ragimunde, Ramelton Lassie, Infula, Bondage, Carronade, and three others ; while 
he ran second to Gavotte for the May Plate at Windsor. In 1891, when three 
years old. Prince Hampton contended in five races, three of which he won — viz., 
the Beaufort Handicap at the Manchester May Meeting, which he secured easily 
from I 'rapotel, Porridge, and fourteen others, including King of Diamonds and 
Linthorpe ; a Plate at the Newmarket Second October Meeting, for which he easily 
defeated Woolsthorpe, Conacher, Gossoon, and six others ; and the Stewards' Cup 
at Liverpool, which he won by a length from Alice, Killowen, Golden Crescent, 
De Beers, Quietus, and Arturo. When four years old, in 1892, Prince Hampton 
commenced the season at Liverpool, winning the Prince of Wales' Stakes of 72Gsovs. , 
beating Noverre, Magistrate, Lady Primrose, Mr. McGregor, Meliboeus, and Deacon, 
At the Epsom Spring Meeting, King of Diamonds beat him and thirteen others for 
the Egmont Plate ; at Ascot, in a field of twenty-five runners for the Royal Hunt 
Cup, carrying 8st. 71b., he ran fourth to Suspender (3yrs., 7st. 101b.), High Com- 
missioner (5yrs., 8st lib.), and Stuart (3yrs., 6st. 21b.); and at Newmarket, for the 
July Cup, he filled the same position behind Workington, Mrs. Butterwick, and 
Peter Flower ; while, carrying the crushing weight of 9st. 51b., he ran unplaced to 
Marvel (oyrs., 8st. 81b.), Peter Flower (4yrs., 8st. 101b.), and Hildebert (4yrs., 
7st. 71b.) for the Stewards' Cup at Goodwood. Prince Hampton ran several times 
that year subsequently, and performed well among large fields in such important 
handicaps as the Peveril of the Peak Plate at Derby, for which he was fourth (with 
8st. 121b.) to Esmond (7st. 41b.); the Portland Plate at Doncaster ; the Duke of 
York Stakes at Kempton Park, for which he finished a close third to Miss Dollar 
and Sabra in a field of twenty-two ; and the Great Tom Stakes at Lincoln, carrying 
9st., third to Ramelton Lassy (4yrs., 7st. 61b.) and Carrick (5yrs. , 7st. 81b.), with a 
large and good field behind him ; whilst at Gatwick, in October, carrying 9st. 21b., 
he won the Rothschild Stakes, easily defeating Tanzmeister (3yrs., 8st. 71b.). In 
1893, retaining his high form into his fifth year. Prince Hampton ran second to 
Juvenal for the Nottingham Spring Handicap ; and in a field of eleven runners, 
including the best speed of the day, was second to Prisoner (beaten only half a 
length, giving him 3st.) for the Royal Stakes at Epsom. Then at Ascot he won 
the Queen's Stand Plate from Paprika, Woolsthorpe, and Throatlash ; and at New- 
market he won the Bottisham Plarte easily by four lengths from Milfoi'd, Harfleur II., 
and Inverdon ; while the July Cup also fell to him, beating Flodden Field, Work- 
ington, Sarana, and Bumptious. At Doncaster, for the Portland Plate, he finished 
close up with Whisperer, Adoration, and Red Enamel ; and at the Newmarket 
Houghton Meeting Prince Hampton wound up his brilliant turf career by beating 
Glare easily for the All Aged Stakes. Prince Hampton was considered one of the 
speediest horses on the turf in 1892 and 1893. He is returned in 1897 as the sire 
of eighteen foals (now yearlings), eight colts and ten fillies, all living.

PRISONER. 

(the property of his excellency earl CADOGAN, CHELSEA HOUSE, LONDON.) 

Will he located during 1S98 and folloicing Seasons at Warren Tower Stud Farm, Cheveley, 
Newmarket, where he will be let to a limited jmmher of approved mares (besides five 
of his owner's) at 4:5gs, each, dams of winners gratis, except fee of 1 guinea to the 
Groom. For all particulars apply to Mr. G. Blackwell, Beverley House, Newmarket. 

Prisoner, by Isonomy (winner of the Cambridgeshire, etc., and sire of Isinglass, 
Ravensbury, etc.), was bred in 1890 by Earl Cadogan, and is the third produce of 
his dam. Lonely (winner of the Oaks, 1885, and also dam of Barley by Barcaldine, 
Arina by Bendigo, Saintly by St. Simon, etc.) by Hermit, bred in 1882 by Mr. H. 
Chaplin. He is a rich bay with black points, 15 hands 3i inches high, of perfect 
symmetry, excellent substance, and superb quality. Prisoner's first appearance on 
a racecourse was in 1892, at the Newmarket July Meeting, in the Plantation Stakes 
for which, with eleven other runners — including Prank, Soult, and Gateshead — he 
was defeated by the Duke of Westminster's Minora by Hermit. His next appear- 
ance was at Stockbridge, for the Troy Stakes of 250sovs., which he won, beating 
Queen of the Spring, Penumbra, and Quilon ; but at Goodwood, for the Findon 
Stakes, the speedy Lady Bob by Cylinder beat him by a neck. At Doncaster, for 
the Prince of Wales' Nursery Plate of l,000sovs., he made a bold bid, running a 
dead heat with King Fox for third place behind Marcion and Quickly Wise ; and 
for the Granby Stakes at Newmarket, although he turned the tables on Quickly 
Wise, the Duke of Beaufort's Consie by Petronel beat him by a short head. Prisoner 
next walked over for the second heat of the Troy Stakes, run at Newmarket in the 
Houghton Week ; but for the Free Handicap of lOOsovs. each, run next day, Col. 
North's Royal Harry beat him by half a length ; and at Aintree he comprised one 
of a field of fifteen runners for the Liverpool Nursery Handicap, won by Marcion, 
with Salerno second and Laodamia third. In 1893, when three years old, Prisoner 
contended in five races, three of which he won. At the Newmarket First Spring 
Meeting he was badly beaten by Seaview by Prism for the Third Welter Plate ; 
but he came out in very improved condition at Epsom in the Derby Week, and 
won the Royal Stakes of 460sovs. from ten opponents, including Prince Hampton, 
Simony II., Leominster, etc. ; and this success he followed up at the Royal Meeting 
by winning the Fourteenth Ascot Triennial of 663sovs., beating Watch Tower and 
five others. At Goodwood he had a good look in, finishing fifth for the Stewards' 
Cup, won by Medora ; after which he was reserved for the Doncaster Cup, which 
he won in a canter by six lengths, beating Simonian, Lady Rosebery, and Ennis- 
killener. In 1894 Prisoner only ran once, for the "Jubilee" Stakes, for which he 
was second to Avington (which see), both carrying 8st. lib., and El Diablo (5yrs., 
7st. 121b.) third. Immediately after this race Prisoner hit his leg at exercise and 
never ran afterwards. According to Weatherbys Supplement to the " Stud Book " 
for 1897, Prisoner is sire of two colts and three fillies (now yearlings), besides dead 
twins from Tripaway by Galliard.

I05 THE HORSE-BREEDERS' HANDBOOK. 



RAEBURN. 

(the property of his grace the duke of PORTLAND, WELBECK ABBEY.) 

Will be located during 1898 and the following Seasons at Rufford Abbey, Allerton, where 
he will cover a limited nvmber of approved mares (bcttides a few of his owner's) at 50gs. 
each, and 1 guittea to the Groom. Application to be made to Warner Turner, Esq., as 
above. 

Raeburn, by St. Simon, was bred in 1890 by the Duke of Portland, and is the 
sixth produce of Mowevina (also the dam of Donovan by Galopin, Semolina by St. 
Simon, etc.) by Scottish Chief, bred in 1876 in Denmark. He is whole bay, full 
of quality and goodness, shaped much alike to his distinguished sire, but on a 
smaller scale, being not quite 16 hands in height, while he girths 6ft. 3in., and 
measures 8| in. below the knee. Raeburn made his debut on the turf at Newmarket 
in the July Meeting of 1892, when two years old, and from the outset gave promise 
of having a successful career on the racecourse, as, carrying 9st., he won the Stud 
Produce Stakes of 794sovs., beating Shelley (8st. 41b.) second, Son of a Gun (8st. 
111b.) third, Bohemond (8st. 41b.), Basihsco (8st. 41b.), Clog Dance (8st. lib.), 
Hawksbury (8st. 41b.), Hecla (8st. lib.), and St. Gregory (9st.) In his second race, 
at the Sandown July Meeting, he was not so fortunate, as, carrying the same weight 
(9st. each) for the Sandringham Gold Cup, he could only get third to Perigord and 
Milford, the remaining runner being Emita. For this defeat, however, Raeburn 
made amends by winning the Ham Stakes of 550sovs. easily from Poppoea and 
Simon Fraser. Then, at the Newmarket First October Meeting, he again carried 
the Duke of Portland's colours to victory in the race for the Boscawen Stakes of 
400sovs., beating Haut Brion, Haddon, and Strathrose. In his two next encounters, 
the Middle Park Plate and the Dewhurst Stakes, he was opposed by two great horses. 
Isinglass and The Meddler, whose colours he failed to lower, and he was seen no 
more on the racecourse that season. In 1893, when three years old, nothing daunted 
by his defeat for the Middle Park Plate, he made one of the eight opponents of 
Isinglass for the Two Thousand ; but though he ran a gallant race, and finished 
third, he failed to make much impression on either Isinglass or Ravensbury, the 
first of whom won by a length and a half, while the field behind Raeburn comprised 
Harbinger, Kilmarnock, Perigord, Royal Harry, St. Jude, Son of a Gun, and Watch 
Tower. For the Derby, Raeburn had another cut at his great opponent Isinglass, as 
had Ravensbury also ; but the race was an exact counterpart of the contest for the 
Two Thousand, the remainder of the field comprising Peppercorn (fourth). Dame 
President, Irish Wake, Lord William, Quickly Wise, Royal Harry, Son of a Gun, 
and William, over the City and Suburban Course. On the day but one afterwards 
Raeburn again greatly distinguished himself, by carrying 8st. 121b. into the second 
place behind Tanderagee (9st. 3Ib.), beating a good field of fresh horses, including 
Harbinger (9st. 31b.), Maltravers (8st. 121b.), and seven others, for the Epsom Grand 
Prize. Then, at Ascot, he was sefcond again for the St. James' Palace Stakes, won 
by Phocion, having behind him Ravensbury and Turiddu. At the Newmarket July 
Meeting, Raeburn was again unfortunate, as Medecis, at even weights, beat him by 
three-quarters of a length for the Midsummer Plate. Raeburn was then reserved for 
the Lancashire Plate worth 6340sovs., at the Manchester September Meeting, which 
he won, carrying 9st. lib., cleverly from Isinglass (9st. 111b.), second. La Flfeche 
(4yrs., lOst. 31b.), third, and Lady Caroline (4yrs., 9st. 71b.). With 100 to 3 betted 
on him, he next won the Royal Stakes of 290sovs. from Masque, his only opponent, 
at the Second October Meeting at headquarters. At the following meeting came his 
crowning performance by running second for the Cambridgeshire Stakes. Carrying 
8st. lib., he ran second to Molly Morgan (4yrs., 6st. 71b.), with Prisoner (3yrs., 7st.) 
third, while among the other runners were La Fleche (4yrs., 9st. 71b.), Metallic (4yrs., 
8st. 71b.), Laodamia (4yrs., 8st. 91b.), Lady Rosebery (5yrs., 8st. 8lb.), Calhstrate 
(3yrs., 8st. 71b.), Le Nicham (3yrs., 8st. lib.), Brocatelle (3yrs., 7st. 131b.), and 
eleven others. In 1894, when four years old, Raeburn again tried conclusions with 
Isinglass in no fewer than three races — viz., for the Prince of Wales' Stakes at the 
Newmarket July Meeting ; the Eclipse Stakes at the Sandown Park Summer 
Meeting ; and the Jockey Club Stakes at the Newmarket First October Meeting, 
all of which fell to the crack horse of the day — Isinglass. Raeburn was then with- 
drawn from the racecourse, and in these sprint-racing days is bound to be widely 
patronised by studmasters and breeders for the turf. He was sire in 1897 of sevey 
colts and eleven fillies (now yearlings), four of which died in foaling.

I07 THE HORSE-BREEDERS' HANDBOOK. 

RAVENSBURY. 

(the property of CAPT. MACHELL, BEDFORD HOUSE, NEWMARKET.) 

Will he located during 1898 and following Seasonx at Kentford, half-Or-mile from Kennett 
Station, where he will be let to a limited number of approved mares (besides a few of 
his owner's) at lOOgs. each. AjtpUcation to be made to Owner, Newmarhet. 

Ravensburt, by Isonomy, was bred in 1890 by Mr. C D. Rose, at Hardwicke 
Hall, Pangbourne, and is the second produce of his dam, Penitent (also the dam 
of Lorette, by Galliard, etc.), by Hermit, bred in 1884: by Mr. H. Chaplin. Ravens- 
bury is a rich brown, and his height is 16 hands 1 inch, while his formation com- 
bines both strength and quality, with excellent bone, and taken altogether he is as 
magnificent a specimen of the thoroughbred horse as was ever foaled. Ravens- 
bury made his first appearance on a racecourse at the Royal Meeting in 1892, when 
in a field of ten runners he finished a good third to Isinglass and Fealar for the 
New Stakes. At the Liverpool July Meeting, conceding Erin 13lb., he defeated her, 
Poppcea, and four others for the great Lancashire Produce Stakes of 2,630sovs ; 
but at York, for the Prince of Wales' Stakes, Queen of Navarre beat him by a 
neck, among the seven runners behind him being Lady Bob, and Phocion. At 
Kempton Park, for the Great Breeders' Stakes, Tanderagee, beat him ; but at 
Newmarket he showed some return to the high form he had displayed for the 
New Stakes, by running his then conqueror. Isinglass, to a length and a half 
for the Middle Park Plate, Le Nicham being third, and Raeburn, to whom he 
was also giving 3lb., fourth. In 1893, when three years old, Ravensbury con- 
tested nine races, in four of which — the Two Thousand, Newmarket Stakes, the 
Derby, and St. Leger — he in vain tried to efl'ect the overthrow of Isinglass, run- 
ning a good second for the three " classic " races, and third for the Newmarket 
Stakes, Phocion separating him and his old antagonist. Isinglass, for the latter 
event. Crossing the " silver streak," Ravensbury next tried his fortune on 
French soil, but although he ran a game, honest horse for the Grand Prix, 
Ragotsky, a son of Perplex, beat him by a short head, Calistrate third, beaten two 
lengths. Then hastily returning to Royal Ascot, it was no disgrace to him to be 
beaten by Phocion and Raeburn for the rich St. James' Palace Stakes ; but later 
in the season Ravensbury recouped some of his expenses by winning the New- 
market Triennial Stakes of 4.50sovs., and the Amphion Plate of 920sovs. In 1894, 
when four years old, Ravensbury began at Ascot by beating La Flfeche (to w>.ora 
he conceded lib.) cleverly by half a length for the Hardwicke Stakes, worth 
2,295sovs., the other runners being Royal Harry and St. Hilaire. Then at the 
Newmarket First July IVIeeting he once more opposed Isinglass for the Princess 
of Wales' Stakes of 10,000sovs., but with no better fortune than in the preceding 
year, as he failed to get placed ; but he did better for the Eclipse Stakes at 
Sandown Park, for which, in a field of seven, he ran third to Isinglass and 
Ladas. Being disappointed at these successive defeats, Mr. Rose now determined 
on selling Ravensbury, and fixing his price at 5,000gs., he was immediately, with 
his usual foresight, secured by Capt. Machell, a great bargain. His first appear- 
ance in the Captain's colours was for the Four-Year-Old Triennial of 454sovs., ran 
for at the First October Meeting, which he easily secured, beating Xylophone and 
two others ; but in the second October week he met a serious reverse, as La F15che 
having come back to her best form, defeated him easily for the Champion Stakes ; 
and later the same week Matchbox beat him for the Lowther Stakes. Then 
followed two more defeats, one on the Abingdon Mile, efi"ected by Medecis for the 
Southfield Plate, and the other by Dumbarton for the Derby Cup. But the end 
was not yet ; distance proved to be Ravensbury's/or^e, for carrying 9st. 4lb., and 
20 to 1 betted against him, he efi'ected the overthrow of eighteen horses for the 
Manchester November Handicap, as easily as at Ascot he defeated La Flfeche 
for the Hardwicke Stakes. In 1895 Ravensbury again greatly distinguished him- 
self, as he won two out of the four events for which he started. At Kempton 
Park, carrying 8st. 13lb., he finished close up for the Jubilee Stakes, won by Victor 
Wild (5yrs., 8st. 4lb.) ; but at Ascot he again proved distance to be his forte, 
by vdnning the Ascot Stakes of l,085sovs., carrying 9st. 9lb., beating a field 
of eight horses, giving them lumps of weight ; and at the same Meeting, with 
100 to 14 betted on him, he defeated Lorikeet and Hounsditch in a canter for the 
Alexandra Plate. At Lewes, Ravensbury, carrying 9st. 9lb. to Marco's 7st. Tilb., 
ran a gallant race, but in the end had to succumb to the subsequent winner of the 
Cambridgeshire, and with this race terminated the turf career of this grand horse.

I09 THE HORSE-BREEDERS' HANDBOOK. 

ROYAL HAMPTON. 

(the property of sir J. BLUNDELL MAPLE, M.P., CHILD WICKBURY, ST. ALBANS.) 
Will he located duriiig the Season 1898 at Childwiek Stud Farm, where he yvlll be let to 

a limited number of mares (jbesides a few of his owner's). Application to he made, 

as above, to Mr. Tom Castle. 

Royal Hampton, by Hampton, was bred in 1882 by Mr. W. Blenkiron, at Middle 
Park, and is the sixth produce of his dam, Princess (also dam of Antonia by 
Ethus, Ebba by Cardinal York, Mr. Lincoln by Van Amburgh, etc.) by King Tom, 
bred in 1872 by Baron Mayer de Rothschild. He is a rich bay with black points, 
and stands IG hands high, with excellent bone, and power combined with quality. 
Royal Hampton began his turf career when two years old, in 1884, at Sandown 
Park, in July, by winning the National Breeders' Produce Stakes of l,596sovs. 
from seven opponents, all of whom subsequently distinguished themselves, 
including Luminary (second), Londonderry (third), Frontispiece, Buckland, 
Novitiate, Beryl, and Beaulieu Lass. His next appearance was for the Richmond 
Stakes at Goodwood, when he was beaten only a head by Rosy Morn, the Colt by 
Macaroni — Lynette being third, the others comprising Harmattan, Queen's Colours, 
and Cocoanut. Royal Hampton then ran second, at Doncaster for the Champagne 
Stakes, to Langwell, Golden Ray being third — amongst the others being Glamour, 
Grecian Bride, Dame Agnes, and St. Helena. His next appearance was for the 
Middle Park Plate, won by Melton, for which he ran a dead-heat for third place 
with Paradox, behind Xaintrailles (second), among the many excellent performers 
behind him being Langwell, Lonely, Cora, Cross Keys, and Monolith. Royal 
Hampton closed his excellent two-year-old performances at the Sandown Park 
October Meeting by running third to Dame Agnes and Hopscotch for the Great 
Sapling Plate, having behind him Alaska, Breakfast, Iceland, Broxbourne, 
Peerless, etc. In 1885, Royal Hampton was first seen at Epsom in the Derby, 
won by Melton by a head from Paradox, to whom he finished third, close up, a 
performance of great merit, considering the subsequent acliievements of the 
winner. Behind Royal Hampton on that occasion were Luminary, Crafton, 
Xaintrailles, Red Ruin, Esterling, Kingwood, and two others. For the Prince of 
Wales's Stakes, of 2,350sovs., at Ascot, won by Pepper and Salt, 8st. 31b., Royal 
Hampton ran a good third, carrying 9st. lib., Dandie Dimmont, 8st. 31b., being 
second ; the others including Swillington, John Barleycorn, Sheraton, and Metal. 
His next and last performance that season was for the Sussex Stakes (1 mile), 
when he only succumbed to Paradox after a rattling race by three-quarters of a 
length, Ducat being third, with Golden Light, Swillington, and Florin behind 
them, a performance which confirmed Royal Hampton's running in the Derby. 
The year following, 1886, he only ran on two occasions, the first being 
the Lincolnshire Handicap, won by Fulmen, Gyrs., 7st. 131b., Bread Knife, 
Gst. 111b., being second, and Cohort, Gyrs., 7st. 41b., third; in which race Royal 
Hampton, carrying 8st., ran a great horse, being in the first flight most of the 
journey ; and, though he appeared to be interfered with at a critical moment, he 
finished close up with the placed horses in a field of twenty-four excellent 
performers. His final appearance that season was for the City and Suburban, 
which he won, carrying 8st. 41b., from Highland Chief, 7st. 101b. (second), and 
Lonely, 7st. 101b. (third) ; among the fourteen others being Cavalier, Gst. 101b. 
(fourth), Middlethorpe, 7st. 81b., Crafton, 7st., Fast and Loose, 7st. 71b., Present 
Times, 7st. 81b., Rafiaello, 7st. 41b., and Exmoor, Gst. This race, highly 
creditable even to a four-year-old of such excellent antecedents, was destined, 
however, to be his last, as an accident which befell him in the summer 
precluded his being trained, and at the close of the season he was withdrawn from 
the turf. In 1887, Royal Hampton commenced stud life at his owner's place, 
Childwiek Stud Farm, St. Albans, and has proved a wonderfully prolific and most 
successful stallion, being the sire of a great number of v/ianers, including Bold 
Hampton, Bonnie Queen, Court Ball, Grace Darling, Golden Blaze, Kirkonnel, 
Marcion, Prince Hampton, Pensioner, Paprika, Royal Douglas, Royal Victoria, 
Court Rose, Golden Rose, Perthshire, Royal Footman, Royal Footstep, Royat, 
Vesuvian, and many other good runners.

SAINFOIN. 

(the property of sir JAMES MILLER, BART.) 

Will he located at Sefton Stud Farm, Newmar'ket, where lie will be let to a limited number 
of approved mares (besides a few of Ms owner's') at 50gs., and 1 guinea to the Groom. 
Subscriptions to be taken of Messrs. Weatherby, or of Mr. J. Buck, Stud Groom, 
as above. 

Sainfoin, by Springfield, was bred in 1887 by Her Majesty, at Hampton Court, and 
is the second produce of Sanda (also the dam of Golden Garter by Bend Or, Vetch by 
Springfield, etc.) by Wenlock, bred in 1878 by Lord Wilton. He is a rich chestnut, 
with blaze face and otherwise marked much alike to Stockwell, to whom he bears a 
remarkable resemblance ; is a horse of good power and rare quality, standing 15 hands 
Sin. high, while he girths 6ft., and measures 8in. below the knee. Sainfoin, having 
been purchased at Her Majesty's Yearling Sale by Mr, John Porter, the Kingsclere 
trainer, commenced his turf career when two years old, in 1889, when he ran only once 
— viz., at Lewes, where he won the Astley Stakes of 929sovs. easily, beating Garter 
(second), Spring Cup (third), his other opponents comprising Bena, Brondena, Bright 
Eyes, Cushat, Grenadiere, Petrel, and Rotten Row. When three years old, in 1890, 
Sainfoin made a good commencement at Sandown Park by winning the Esher 
Stakes easily from Dry Toast, Cheroot, Amphion, Wishing Gate, and seven others ; 
and then at Chester he easily disposed of Bull's Eye, his only opponent, for the 
Dee Stakes, worth 650sovs. The excellent form thus shown by Sainfoin, pointing 
as it did to the great chance he possessed of winning the Derby, induced Sir James 
Miller to become his owner for 6,000gs., and a most fortunate purchase it proved 
to be, for he secured the " blue riband " for his new owner just as easily as he did 
his previous races, beating Le Nord (second), Orwell (third), Surefoot, Martagon, 
Rathbeal, Golden Gate, and Kirkham, the price betted against him at starting 
being 100 to 15. At Ascot, Sainfoin made a bold attempt to take the rich Hard wick 
Stakes, but failed to beat Amphion, to whom he ran second ; nor was he more for- 
tunate at Doncaster (the scene of Wenlock's great victory, the sire of his dam), as 
he could only run fourth to Memoir, Blue Green, and Gonsalvo, for the St. Leger. 
In 1891, when four years old. Sainfoin was third to Hiremon and Dearest for the 
Imperial Plate at Hurst Park ; and in 1892, having failed to lower the colours of 
Clarence for the Lincolnshire Handicap, and of Buccaneer for the City and Subur- 
ban, he was withdrawn from the turf to the stud, being placed in the charge of 
Mr. Cooper Smith at the HoUist Stud Farm, where he begat seven foals in 1895, 
three of which are winners — viz., Runnymede, a chestnut filly out of Acceleration 
by Reverberation ; Scareaway, a chestnut filly out of Scare by King of the Forest ; 
and a chestnut colt out of Countess Macaroni by Victor Chief. From Sainfoin's 
splendid breeding there need be little doubt of his siring many more winners, if 
breeders will be suSiciently wise to send him mares suitably bred to nick with the 
many fine strains of the winning blood of the day in him that may be seen in the 
opposite page, and his removal to Newmarket should insure him these.

ST. ANGELO. 

(the property of the HON. CAPTAIN GREVILLE). 

Will he located during 1898 and following Seasons at the Burghlep Stud, Stamford, where 
he loill cover a limited number of approved mares {besides a few of his owner^s') at 
lOOgs. each mare, and 1 guinea to the Groom. Only a few subscriptions left for 1898. 

St. ANCiEi.o, by Galopin, was bred in 1889 by the Duchess of Montrose at the 
celebrated Sefton Stud formed by Mr. W. S. Crawfurd, and is the fifth produce 
of Agneta (also the dam of St. Cyr by Trappist, Medora by Bend Or, etc.) by 
Macaroni, bred in 1879 by the Duke of Hamilton. St. Angelo made his first 
appearance on a racecourse when two years old, in 1891, at the Manchester Sep- 
tember Meeting, in the Stretford Plate (6fur.) for all ages, for which, carrying 8st., 
he ran third to Vagrant (2yrs., 8st.) and Massacre (3yrs., lOst.), having behind him 
Bungalow (5yrs., lOst. 71b.), D'Orsay (5yrs., lOst. 41b.), Glenshee (3yrs., 9st. 111b.), 
Syra (2yrs., 8st. 21b.), and Lamblike (2yrs., 8st.). This race proved a good trial 
for his next engagement in the Hopeful Stakes of 557sovs. at the Newmarket First 
October Meetmg, which he won from the colt by Galliard out of Lady Superior, 
Gossoon, The Smew, and Golconda ; a smart performance, as he beat all the party 
easily by three lengths. At the Second October Meeting St. Angelo entered the 
lists against Orme, on whom 15 to 8 was betted for the Middle Park Plate, which 
he won by two lengths from El Diablo, who finished a neck in advance of Gantlet, 
close up with whom, and placed fourth by the judge, was St. Angelo, next to whom 
came the subsequent Derk>y winner Sir Hugo, Polyglot, and four others. St. Angelo 
ran his fourth and last race as a two-year-old for the Criterion Stakes, at the 
following Houghton Meeting, for which, carrying 9st. lib., he was beaten by a short 
head rather unluckily, through coming a stride or two too late, by Mr. Houldsworth's 
Mortgage, Curio, four lengths off, being third, followed by Vampire, Orville, 
Middleham, and Wilfred. In 1892, when three years old, St. Angelo contended in 
ten races, five of which he won, proving himself to be a horse of great speed as well 
as endurance. He commenced by running a good second to Bonavista for the Two 
Thousand, Curio being third (thus confirming the Criterion running) ; while the 
other runners were Galeopsis (fourth). Sir Hugo, El Diablo, Goldfinch, Dunure, 
Scarbrough, Persistive, President, The Lover, Rouge Dragon, and Sir Charles. 
For the Newmarket Stakes he was unfortunate in suffering defeat by a head from 
Curio, St. Damien (third) beaten a head, with Certosa fourth, and nine others 
beaten off. For the Derby St. Angelo, after having the worst of a scrimmage at 
Tattenham Corner, ran a good fourth to Sir Hugo, La Fleche, and the French 
horse Bucentaure, the Two Thousand winner Bonavista, El Diablo, St. Damien, 
Thessalian, and five others, finishing behind him. St. Angelo's turn now came at 
Ascot, where he easily turned the tables on Sir Hugo for the St. James's Palace 
Stakes, worth l,850sovs., in which Watercress also beat the Derby winner. Then, 
at the Newmarket Second July Meeting, St. Angelo won the Zetland Plate of 
500sovs. in a canter from Islander and Simonite, and at the, same Meeting walked 
over for the Midsummer Plate of 500sovs. At the Manchester September Meeting 
St. Angelo was sent to contest the Lancashire Plate against a very distinguished 
field, comprising La Fleche, Sir Hugo, El Diablo, Orvieto, Llanthony, Son of a 
Gun, Conifer, May Duke, Mark Price, and Empress of Germany ; but when going 
great guns, and looking very like taking this rich prize, he got into rotten ground 
and fell, thereby relieving La Fleche, who beat Orvieto by three lengths, of her 
most dangerous opponent. St. Angelo's next effort was made for the Duke of 
York Stakes at Kempton Park, but, burdened with 8st. 111b., he, with twenty-one 
others, were very cleverly defeated by Miss Dolla, carrying the lenient weight for 
a six-year-old of 8st. lib. At the Newmarket Second October Meeting St. Angelo 
won the Select Stakes, carrying 9st., by a head from Thessalian (8st. 91b.), with 
May Duke (8st. 91b.) third, and Iddesleigh (6yrs., 8st. 121b.) beaten off ; and, later 
in the week, he accomplished a still more pronounced victory by giving away his 
year to Prince Hampton, and beating him (carrying 9st. each) by half a length for 
the Fourteenth Great Challenge Plate of 405sovs., with which his doings on the race- 
course terminated. St. Angelo was purchased at a high figure by the Hon. Captain 
Greville, and put to the stud at the Burghley Paddocks, the birthplace of the great 
Pocahontas, where, although few mares were at first put to him, he is sire of the 
following winners : — *Sir Geoffrey, Lncknow, *Brenda, St. Lucia, Sarratt, St. 
Mallard, Hampton Girl, *Mimosa San, *Lady, Stream of GoJd, Angelot, Archangel, 
and Stucco ; while the following were placed : — Matilda of Flanders colt, Purple 
Mountain colt, Paravent colt, Angelos, and Princess Anne. 

* Bred at the Burghley Stud.

ST. FLORIAN. 

(the property of JOHN GUBBINS, ESQ., BRUREE HOUSE, BRUFF, CO. LIMERICK.) 

Will be located at the Knockany Stud Farm, Bruff, Co. Limerick, Ireland, where he loill 
cover a limited number of approved mares {besides a few of his owner's') at 50gs. each 
mare, and 1 guinea to the Groom. Ajjjflicatioti to be made to the Stud Groom, as 
above. 

St. Flokian, by St. Simon, was bred in 1891 by Mr. Douglas Baird, and is the 
eleventh produce of her dam Palmflower (also the dam of Siphonia and Silene, 
both by St. Simon, etc.), by The Palmer, bred in 1874 by Mr. G. H. R. Cookson. 
He is a rich bay, with black points, standing 16|- hands high, and possessing both 
power, good bone, and quality. Being an overgrown backward colt, requiring time 
to mature his powers, he only fulfilled one of his engagements in 1893, when two 
years old — viz., the Ham Stakes at Goodwood, for which he ran BuUingdon to 
half a length, having behind him Jocasta and Theseus. In 1894 he ran for the 
first time as a three-year-old at the Newmarket First Spring Meeting in the Two 
Thousand, won by Ladas, and for which he finished close up behind Matchbox 
(second), and Athlone (third) ; and he ran his third race at the Second Spring 
Meeting second to Ladas, who had some trouble to shake him off, and having behind 
him Glare, Galston, and Sir John Broad. The next contest in which St. Florian 
took part was the rich St. James' Stakes at Ascot, for which he, St. Hilaire, and 
Athlone were cleverly defeated by the Prince of Wales' Florizel II. At the New- 
market July Meeting St. Florian (3yrs., 8st. 21b.), Priestholme (3yrs., Sst. 41b.), 
BuUingdon (3yrs., Sst. 131b.), Ladas (3yrs., 9st. 51b.), Ravensbury (4yrs., 9st. 111b.), 
Raeburn (4yrs., lOst.), and Isinglass (4yrs., lOst. 31b.), formed the field for the 
Princess of Wales's Stakes of 10,000sovs., in which Ladas suffered such a signal 
overthrow from both Isinglass and BuUingdon, the former of whom won by a 
head, with Ladas third, beaten three lengths, and St. Florian a good fourth. At 
the Newmarket First October Meeting, St. Florian again opposed Isinglass for 
the Jockey Club Stakes of 10,000sovs., but with no better fortune, as that great 
horse won easily from the French horse, Gouvernael (second), Son of Mine (third), 
and St. Florian again fourth. For these excellent performances St. Florian had at 
length his reward at Kempton Park, where, carrying 7st., and with 10 to 1 betted 
against him, he won the Duke of York Stakes of 1740sovs. easily by half a length 
from Athel (5yrs., 7st. 121b.), second, Avington (4yrs., 9st. 71b.), third. Throstle 
(3yrs., Sst. 91b.), fourth, Victor Wild (4yrs., Sst. 91b.), Worcester (4yrs., 8st. 21b.), 
Dumbarton (3yrs., 7st. 101b.), Court Ball (3yrs., 7st.), and eleven others. At the 
Derby November Meeting, St Florian, carrying 7st. Sib., had the tables turned on 
him by Dumbarton (3yrs., 7st. 71b.) for the Derby Cup, which terminated the 
racing career of this fine horse, who was soon afterwards purchased by Mr. Gubbins, 
at a long figure, and has now taken the place vacated by Kendal at the Knockany 
stud, where, from his good looks and grand breeding, he is likely to prove as 
successful as that fine son of Bend Or, now located at the Bruntwood stud in 
Cheshire. In Weatherhi/s Supplement to the " Stud Book" for 1897 St. Florian is 
returned as the sire of seven colts and nine fillies (now yearlings), all living and 
holding out great future promise.

Mirabelle by Uncas, Kallicrates by Hermit, High Havens by Foxhall, Isador by 
Bend Or, Carl Egon by Galopin, Isabinda by St. Simon, St. Gris by Galopin, etc.)

and good at all points, as may be seen in his portrait. He stands 15 hands Sin. 
girths 6ft., and measures below the knee Sin. St. Frusquin commenced hia short 
but brilliant racing career when two years old, in 1895, at the Kempton Park 
Spring Meeting, where, in a field of eleven runners and ridden by T. Loates, he 
won the Royal Two- Year-Old Plate of 3,155sovs., beating his stable companion 
Gulistan by a neck, with Funny Boat third, beaten three lengths, while among the 
others were Amaryllis (placed fourth), High Treasurer, Berkeley, and Coylton. 
This victory he followed up by winning the Sandringham Gold Cup of 2,085sovs. at 
Sandown Park, beating Labrador, St. Servan, Cushendall, Serpentine, and Radiata; 
and he next, at Newmarket, appropriated the Chesterfield Stakes of 760sovs.,

field of fourteen runners, he suffered a half-length defeat from Teufel (8st. 121b.) 
by Despair, with Mr. Bass' ch. filly by Marden third, among the other runners being 
Barn Dance, Bothwell, and Dunrobin. Next came his great victory, carrying 
9st. 31b., for the Middle Park Plate of 2,305sovs., beating Omladina (9st.) 
Persimmon (9st. 31b.), Knight of the Thistle (8st. 101b.), and eight others, among

commenced his three-year-old career by winning the Column Produce Stakes of 
778sovs. at the Newmarket Craven Meeting, carrying ^it. 101b., beating South 
Australian (8st. 111b.), second, Brechin (8st. 61b.), third, and three others ; and he 
next appropriated the Two Thousand, worth 4,250sovs., beating Love Wisely 
(second), Labrador (third), Dynamo, Bucephalus, The Winter King, and Toussaint 
He next ran for the Derby (the most memorable race on record), for which, with 
13 to 8 betted on him. Persimmon effected his overthrow, after a terrific race, by a 
neck. At the Newmarket First July, for the Princess of Wales' Stakes* the two 
doughty Derby combatants met again, when St. Frusquin won by half a length, the 
course being the Bunbury mile ; and he ran once more in the Eclipse Stakes, which 
he won in a canter from Regret, Troon, and Labrador. During his short but 
brilliant turf career St. Frusquin won nine races of the value of 32,965sovs. It 
was in his last race that he injured a sinew, which caused his withdrawal to the 
stud, where he bad eighteen mares put to him in 1897, and is full for this season.

119 THE HORSE-BREEDERS' HANDBOOK. 



ST. SERF. 

(the property op his grace the duke of PORTLAND, WELBECK ABBEY, 

WORKSOP.) 

Will he located during the Season 1898 at Egerton House, Newmarket, where he mill he 
let to a limited number of approved mares (besides a few of his owiwr's) at \QOgs. each 
mare, and 1 guinea to the Groom. Application to he made to Mr. R. Marsh, as above, 
or to T. Wariier Turner, Esq., Welhech, Worksop. 

St. Serf, by St. Simon, was bred in 1887 by Lord Rosslyn, and is the third 
produce of Feronia (also the dam of Hamptonia by Hampton, etc.) by Thormanby, 
bred in 1868 by Mr. Jackson. He is a rich bay, standing 16 hands 3in., girths 
6ft. 3in., measures 8Jin. below the knee, and is a lengthy true-shaped horse of 
good power and fine quality. St. Serf, when two years old, ran only once — viz., 
for the Clearwell Stakes at Newmarket in 1889, third to Right Away and Vermilion, 
having behind him Star, Heckberry, lioup, and Plato. In 1890, when three years 
old, he was placed fourth to Surefoot, Le Nord, and Blue Green for the Two 
Thousand, the rest of the field comprising AUoway, Golden Gate, Belleville, 
Villejust, and Lusignan. St. Serf's next appearance was at Epsom, where he won 
the Epsom Grand Prize of 2,217sovs., beating Ornatus, Ben, Lux, Sunderland, 
Polybus, and Biggar ; and this victory he followed up at the Royal Meeting by 
winning the Ascot Rous Memorial Stakes of 960sovs. from Martagon, Golden Gate, 
Workington, Laureate, and Theophilus. At the Newmarket July Meeting St. Serf 
started a hot favourite for the Midsummer Plate of l,060sovs., which he won easily 
from Ornatus, Dearest, Imp, Edgardo, MacMorrogh, Vermilion, and Sebastian. 
At Goodwood, with 5 to 2 betted on him, he easily defeated Star, Golden Gate, 
Orwell, and several others for the Sussex Stakes worth 782sovs. In the Autumn 
St. Serf accompanied his stable companion Memoir to Doucaster, behind whom, 
Blue Green and Gonsalvo, he ran unplaced for the St. Leger ; and on his return 
to the South ran again unplaced behind Amphion, Martagon, Costorphine, and 
six others, including Memoir, for the Lancashire Plate at Manchester. At the 
Newmarket Second October Meeting he walked over for the Fifth Zetland Stakes ; 
and in the following Houghton week finished his very successful turf career by 
winning the Three-Year-Old Free Handicap of 650sovs., beating Martagon, Blue 
Green, Surefoot, and Sainfoin. In 1892 St. Serf was relegated to the stud, and 
his progeny have already attained great success on the turf, he being the sire of 
many winners, including Eileen Aigas, Helen Mary, Marcus II., Merle, Serfdom, 
Shaddock, Thais, Intrusion, La Novice, Liverpool Lass, St. Fort, and St. Ja, 
winners of five two-year-old races in 1897, of the value of l,992sovs.

ST. SIMON. 

(the property of his grace the duke of PORTLAND, WELBECK ABBEY.) 

Will le located during the Season 1898 at Welbeck Abbey, where lie will be let to a limited 
number of approved mares at ZOOgs. each marc, and 1 guinea to the Groom. Appli- 
cation to be made, as above, to T. Warner Turner, Esq. Subscription full for 1S95 
and 1896. 

St. SIxMON, by Galopin (winner of the Derby 1875), was bred by Prince Batthyany 
in 1881, and is the tenth produce of his dam St. Angela (also dam of La Fripponne 
by Fripponier ; Angelica by Galopin, dam of Blue Green, Orme, etc.), by King Tom. 
He is a brown, with small star, and part of near hind heel white. His height is 
16 hands lin., girth 6ft., 6in., and he measures Sfin. below the knee. Having 
been purchased by the Duke of Portland on the death of his breeder, Prince 
Batthyany, St. Simon commenced his racing career in 1883, when two years old, 
and his performances that season were distinguished by exceptional merit and 
success. He made his first appearance at Goodwood, for the Halnaker Stakes 
(5 fur.), which he won easily from eight opponents, including Richelieu (second), 
Cerva (third), Hollander, Woodlark, Pillery, and the Filly by Kisber — North Wind. 
On the following day, for the Maiden Stakes, he as easily defeated his sole opponent, 
the Colt by Balfe — Katrine, conceding 71b. St. Simon did not run again until 
September, at Derby, when, carrying the highest weight (8st. 121b.), among nineteen 
smart competitors for the Devonshire Nursery Plate, he was again an easy winner, 
Trionfi, 7st. 71b., being second, and Archer, 7st. 91b., third; among the other runners 
being Limosa, 8st. 31b., Nero, 6st. 101b., Campanile, Bst. 21b., Fast and Loose, Sst. 21b., 
]\Iarquis of Tavora, 6st. 41b., etc. This great performance he surpassed the same 
month, at Doncaster for the Prince of Wales's Nursery Plate, when, carrying 9st., 
and giving over a stone to the highest weighted of his twenty-one opponents, he 
won easily from Iambic, 6st. 71b. (second), Belinda, 7st. 111b. (third), St. Medard, 
6st. 111b., Kinsky, 7st. 81b., Edison, 6sfc. 71b., Primavera, 7st. 41b., Loch Ranza, 7st., 
Clochette, 7st. 101b., etc. St. Simon's final contest that season was a Match for 
oOOsovs. with Duke of Richmond, at even weights, whom he easily disposed of, 
thus completing a succession of two-year-old victories rarely witnessed. In 1884, 
when three years old, St. Simon still remained unvanquished, having won the 
whole of the five races for which he contended. His first appearance that season 
was at Newmarket for the Trial Match, which, carrying Sst. , he won without the 
least difficulty from the six-year-old Tristan, 9st. 91b. ; Credo, Gst. 21b., being beaten 
off in company with Iambic. The absence of St. Simon from the great "classic" 
races, caused by the death of his breeder. Prince Batthyany, whose nominations 
became void, occasioned widespread regret ; but, nevertheless, the myriads who 
make holiday at Epsom during the Derby week were afforded an opportunity of 
seeing St. Simon, when, no opponent venturing to face him for the Epsom Gold 
Cup, he " walked over " for that trophy. St. Simon's next venture was for the 
Gold Cup at Ascot (2ml. 4 fur.), which he won very easily from four opponents, 
including Tristan, Faugh-a-Ballagh, Iambic, and Friday. The Gold Cup at New- 
castle fell to his lot shortly after, for which he found little difficulty in defeating 
the four-year-old Chislehurst, at a difference of 81b. ; and he wound up his second 
aeries of successive triumphs with the Goodwood Cup (2 ml. 4 fur.), defeating 
Ossian by twenty lengths, with Friday beaten almost out of sight. This was 
St. Simon's last race, which permitted of his entering into stud life with a wholly 
unimpaired constitution, the good effects of which have gained for him the first 
place among all the stallions of his time, as his progeny have won no fewer than 
214 races of the value of £230,119, during the seven years they have been running.

ST. SIMONMIMI. 

(the property of CAPT. W. H. fife, LANGTON hall, NORTHALLERTON, YORKS.) 

Will he located during 1898 and following Seasons at the Langton Hall Stud Farm, North- 
allerton, Yorkshire, where he loill he let to a limited nuviber of mares (besides a few 
of his owner's') at i5gs, each and 1 guinea to the Groom. He is full for 1898, hut 
subscriptions for 1899 (when he toill he strictly limited to twenty public mares) may 
he taken by application to the Manager of the Langton Hall Stud, as above, 

St. Simonmimi by St. Simon was bred in 1894, at Sledmere, by Sir Tatton Sykes, 
and is the second produce of the Oaks winner, Mimi (dam also of Mimic by 
Galopin and two younger full brothers to St. Simonmini) by Barcaldine, bred in 
1888, also by Sir Tatton Sykes. He is a brown horse, standing slightly over 
16 hands, has a very deep girth, is thick through the heart, and is big below the 
knee ; his head and neck are well set on to beautiful shoulders and short back, and 
he bears a strong resemblance to his sire both in colour and character, yet he has 
the thickness and power of Barcaldine. St. Simonmimi, owing to inflammation of 
a joint when a foal, was not fit to send up for sale with Sir Tatton Sykes' yearlings, 
and has consequently never been trained ; had he been, he would doubtless have 
distinguished himself on the racecourse, having in him all the winning strains 
of blood that have so prominently come to the front during the last two or three 
decades. As may be seen on the opposite page, he is inbred to Blacklock, having in 
him eleven strains of that celebrity, which, combined with four strains of Bird- 
catcher, four of Touchstone (reckoning one for his full brother Launcelot), three of 
Pocahontas, and one each of Harkaway and Melbourne, names prominent in the 
pedigrees of nearly all the winners of the present day, makee him a most valuable 
stallion. The affected joint, although it prevented St. Simonmimi being trained, 
won't prove any bar to his success as a sire, being sound in every other particular. 
St. Simonmimi (like Young Melbourne when the same age) was allowed in 1897, 
when three years old, to serve eight mares, seven of which he stinted, and he is 
already the sire of several fine foals.

SAVILE. 

(the property op J. S. CURTIS, ESQ., LEESBURG, VIRGINIA, U.S.A.) 
Will he located during the season 0/1898 at 3f ay field Stud Farm, Leeslurg, rehere he will 

serve a limited mimher of approved mares (besides a few of his owner's) at $250eacA. 

Application to he made to the Manager, Mayfield Stud Farm, P.O. Box 31, Leeshurg 

Va., U.S.A. 
Savile by Hampton was bred in 1884, by Lord Wolverton, and was the sixth and 
most successful produce of his dam Lilian by Wingrave. He is a bay horse, stand- 
ino' 16 hands high, with tremendously strong hindquarters, and a powerful, well put 
on shoulder, while he does not show the weakness of " middle piece " of his great 
sire Hampton. He has great bone below the knee and hock, and is " well let 
down." Savile became the property of the Duke of Westminster, in whose name 
he ran during his racing career in England. He made his first appearance in the 
Dee Stakes (1| miles for three-year-olds) at Chester, for which he ran a dead heat 
with the Rector, and in the deciding heat won by a length. His next race was the 
Derby, in which he finished seventh, behind such horses as Merry Hampton (first). 
The Baron (second), Marley (third), and Aintree (fourth). Carrying 7st. 51b., he 
ran unplaced in the Manchester Cup won by Pell Mell (4yrs., 8st. 91b.) ; but at 
Ascot, in the St. James' Palace Stakes (1 mile), carrying 9st., he rsn third to 
Florentine (9st.), and Timothy (9st.) having behind him Chippeway (8st. 71b.), 
Cayenne Pepper (8st. 71b., the favourite), Turlygood (9st.), Vatican (9st.), and St. 
Crispin (9st.) ; and at the same meeting, carrying 8st. 101b.. Jersey Lily (8st.) beat 
him for the Triennial Stakes. At Liverpool the Thirtieth Knowslev Dinner 
Stakes (1^ miles), was nothing more than a match in which Savile (9st. 71b.) easily 
defeated Alligator (8st. 71b.) by a neck. Then, returning to the south, Savile (3vrs., 
7st. 71b.), won the Goodwood Cup by nearly four lengths, after running a dead heat 
with St. Michael (4yrs., 8st. 121b.), the other runners being Upas (4yrs., 9st. 51b.), 
and Yarmean (3yrs., 7st. 71b.). In the Breeders' St. Leger Stakes (1 mile), at 
Derby, Savile ran unplaced, and he also failed to obtain a situation for the 
Doncaster St. Leger, won by Kilwarlin ; Merry Hampton, and Timothy, being the 
placed horses. Subsequently Savile ran unplaced for the Cfesarewitch and the Man- 
chester November Handicap, which terminated his three-year-old career. As a 
four-year-old Savile ran five times, his best performance being for the Chester Cup 
(2J miles), for which he carried 7st. 101b. second to Kinsky (8st. 121b.), having 
behind him Chippeway (4yrs., 7st. 111b.), the Cob (5 yrs., 8st. 101b.), Stonehead 
(aged, 8st. 81b.), What-Not (3yrs., 5st. 101b.), Winter Cherry (5yrs., 6st. 91b.), and 
five others ; while for the Alexandra Plate (about 3 miles), carrying 9st. 51b., he 
was second to Timothy (4yrs,, 9st. 51b.), and beat The Cob (5yrs., 9st. 61b.). In 
his two years' racing career in England, it will be remembered that Savile ran 
sixteen times, was first three times, second twice, and third once, while he was un- 
placed in ten races. He won £1353. In December 1888 he was purchased at 
Newmarket for R. W. Yause, of Durban, and shipped to South Africa, where he ran 
fifty-nine times in five years, finishing his racing career in 1893, at the age of nine 
years. He won fifteen races, of the value of £3625, was second eight times, third 
fifteen times, and unplaced twenty-one times. In all his races in South Africa, 
excepting two or three, he carried top weight and often went to the post in bad 
condition. This told on him, and previous to his being withdrawn from the turf , 
he commenced to show signs of hard work in his fetlock joints. The enlargement 
has now almost entirely disappeared, and at the age of fourteen he is as vigorous, 
strong, and active as ever. As a stallion he has already acquired no little fame, 
being the sire of Saviletta, winner of the Port Elizabeth Nursery, and the South 
African Derby, while he is also the sire of Gay Hampton, winner of the South 
African Nursery, the Port Elizabeth Derby, and the South African Derby. He 
became the property of his present owner in 1895.

127 THE HORSE-BREEDERS' HANDBOOK. 



SELBY. 

(the property of MR. MILES I'aNSON, HUNGERFOUD HOUSE, MALTON, YORKS.) 

Will he located during ISdS and followinff Seasons at the Blink Bonwtj Stud Farm, Malton, 
Yorks., where he mill be let to a limited number of mares at 50ffs. each, and 1 gtiinea 
to the Groom. Apply to Mr. Miles F Anson, Hungerford House, Malton, Yoi'ks. 

Selby, by Beauclerc, was bred in 1882, being the seventh produce of The Pearl (also 
dam of Coromandel IV. by Macaroni, Insignia by Pero Gomez, etc.) by Newminster, 
bred by Mr. W. I' Anson in 1868. He is a bay horse of great power combined 
with quality, and stands well on good legs. His height is close upon 16 hands, 
while he girths 6ft. 3in., and measures 8^in. below the knee. The racing career of 
Selby was distinguished by stamina and speed combined, and commenced when two 
years old, in 1884, at Pontefract, when he ran unplaced for the West Riding Cham- 
pagne Stakes to Lonsdale ; nor was he more fortunate that season, as he only 
ran once more, in the Redcar Two- Year-Old Stakes, won by King Monmouth. 
Selby did not run as a three-year-old ; but when four years old, in 1886, he highly 
distinguished himself, by winning two of the six races he contested — viz., the Mid- 
summer Welter Handicap at Manchester, value 450sovs., when carrying 9st., which 
he won by a head from Buzgo (4yrs., 9st. 21b.), Bonnie Charlie (5yrs., 8st. 41b.), 
Queen Adelaide (5yrs., 9st. 61b.), and two others ; the Great Yorkshire Handicap 
at Doncaster, value 690sovs., carrying 7st. lib., beating Belinda (5yrs., 7st. 61b.), 
King Monmouth (4yrs., 8st. 121b.), Titterstone (3yrs., 6st. 111b.), Ben Alder (6yrs., 
7st. 91b.), and Greenbank (6yrs., 6st. 131b.). Besides these, he walked over for 
Her Majesty's Plate at Edinburgh ; and ran second for the Northumberland Plate 
(two miles) at Newcastle to Stone Clink, the others including Nightcap, Blue Grass, 
Radius, and Scotilla. His last appearance that season was at Liverpool November 
Meeting, when he was unplaced to Alexander for the November Hurdle Handicap. 
When five years old, in 1877, at Richmond, Selby ran Stone Clink to a head, at even 
weights, for Her Majesty's Plate (2m.) ; and he finished a good third, carrying 
lOst. 21b., to Mosque (3yrs., 7st. 21b.) and Mischief (4yrs., 8st. 71b.) for the Redcar 
Handicap (Im. 240yds.). At Edinburgh, in October, he again walked over for Her 
Majesty's Plate ; and at the same meeting, carrying 8st. 121b., ran third to Iron- 
clad (aged, 7st. 131b.), and Horton (3yrs., 6st. 131b.), for the Gold Cup (2m.), 
beating Sanctuary (4yrs., 7st. 131b.), Lady Adelaide (aged, 7st. 131b.), and Mirth 
(4yrs., 7st. 131b.). Selby's performances as a six-year-old were again distin- 
guished by stamina and speed, but were scarcely more fortunate. After carry- 
ing the heavy burden, 9st. 71b., unplaced to Daisy (7st. 21b.) for the Ponte- 
fract Spring Handicap, he finished second for two important handicaps — viz., the 
Manchester Cup (l|m.), value 2,426sovs., when, carrying 7st. 41b., he ran Merry 
Andrew (3yrs., 6st. lib.) to a neck, beating Scottish King (4yrs., 8st.), Reve d'Or 
(4yrs., 8st. 81b.), Lady Muncaster (4yrs., 8st.), Tissaphernes (4yrs., 7st. 111b.), 
Johnny Morgan (3yrs., 7st. 71b.), and two others ; and the Great Northern Handi- 
cap at York, when, carrying 7st. r21b., he was second to Banter (4yrs., 6st. 21b.), 
among the five others being Horton (4yrs., 7st. 21b.), and Nightcap (6yrs., 7st. 61b.). 
This ended the racing career of Selby, who promises highly at the stud, having 
already done well, being the sire, among others, of Jim Selby (winner of the Sea- 
ton Delaval Plate of l,060sov8. at Newcastle), Newby, St. Germanus, and Whaddon 
Chase. In Weatherhy s Supplement to the " Stud Book " for 1897 Selby is returned 
as the sire of fifteen foals (now yearlings) — eleven colts and four fillies, one of the 
former of which, a colt out of Vestalia, is dead ; also a filly out of Queen Eleanor.

129 THE HORSE-BREEDERS' HANDBOOK. 

SIR HUGO. 

(the property of the right honourable the SAEL op BRADFORD.) 

Will he located during 1898 and following Seasons at Weston-under-Lizard, Shifnal, 
Salop, where he will cover a limited number of approved mares (besides a few of his 
owner's) at l^Ogs. each mare, and one guinea to the Groom. Ajrplicatioii to be made 
as above to E, Griffiths, Esq., or Mr. J, Wilkes, Stud Groom. Subscription full for 
1896. 

Sir Hugo (winner of the Derby, 1892, etc. by Wisdom, was bred in 1889 by the 
Earl of Bradford, and is the eighth produce of his dam Manoeuvre (also dam of 
Tactic [in Germany! Flying Column, and Aldershot, all by Chippendale, etc.) by 
Lord Clifden, also bred in 1874 by the Earl of Bradford. Sir Hugo is a rich 
chestnut, 16 hands 1 inch high, and is one of the finest and most perfect-shaped horses 
ever foaled — " as handsome as paint," and as sound as a bell of brass. The racing 
career of this splendid horse commenced when two years old at Ascot in 1891, where, 
not being quite wound up, he could do no more than finish third to Lord Alington's 
Polyglot by Bend Or, and Mr. C. D. Eose's St. Damien by St. Simon ; but, being 
fitter at Goodwood, he had no difficulty in beating Kyle, BouthilHer, Desdemona, 
and Scarbrough for the Rous Memorial Stakes of l,117sovs., on the memorable 
,wet Thursday of that Meeting when each of the jockeys drew 2lb. over weight. 
At Doncaster Sir Hugo was readily defeated by La Flfeche for the Champagne 
Stakes, but at the Newmarket October Meeting he easily appropriated the 
Boscawen Stakes of 600sovs., beating Katherine II., Chloris, and Pensioner ; but 
for the Middle Park Plate he and nine others were easily defeated by Orme, the 
second and third places being filled by El Diablo and Gauntlet. In 1892 Sir Hugo 
commenced the season by running unplaced in a field of fourteni horses for the 
Two Thousand, won by Bonavista, with St. Angelo second, and Curio third ; but 
at Epsom he came out in grand form, and won the Derby by three-quarters of 
a length from La Flfeche, the French horse Bucentaure being third, with St. 
Angelo fourth, Thessalian fifth, and the following unplaced :— Bonavista, El Diablo, 
Galeopsis, Hatfield, Llanthony, Persistive, Rueil, and St. Damien. La Flfeche 
was the favourite at 11 to 10 against, whilst 40 to 1 was betted against the winner. 
At Ascot Sir Hugo was unexpectedly defeated by St. Angelo for the St. James' 
Palace Stakes, Watercress being second ; but on the Doncaster Town Moor this 
running was proved to be incorrect by his defeating Watercress for the St. Leger, 
for which, after making a grand effort for victory, he suflFered a two-lengths defeat 
from La Flfeche, Watercress being third, three lengths off, while the unplaced 
division comprised Curio (winner of the Ne-wmarket Stakes), Certosa, Dunure, El 
Diablo, May Duke, Orme, Llanthony, and The Lover. For the Lancashire Plate 
at Manchester, Sir Hugo, for the third time, tried conclusions with La Flfeche, 
but with no more fortunate result than for the St. Leger ; and then at the New- 
market Second October Meeting he suffered another defeat ; for, after a grand 
effort to give 15lb. to El Diablo for the Lowther Stakes, the latter beat him by a 
neck, with Dunure, to whom he was giving 9lb., third, and three others beaten off. 
In the Houghton Week Sir Hugo wound up his year's labours unsuccessfully, 
Orme defeating him. El Diablo, Flank March, and Orvieto for the Limekiln 
Stakes. In 1893 Sir Hugo commenced the season in flying colours by winning the 
Newmarket Four-year-old Biennial very easily from Bushey Park, Barrow, and 
Curio, after which, one of his fore legs showing symptoms of weakness, he was 
withdrawn from the turf, and after a season's rest was put to the stud in 1894, 
when his subscription rapidly filled at 150gs. each mare, a fact not in the least 
surprising considering his good looks, excellent performances, and that he is full 
of the most successful winning blood of the day, as may be seen on the opposite 
page, where his pedigree is set out in full. Sir Hugo's progeny in 1897 comprised 
fourteen colts and ten fillies (now yearlings), two of the latter of whom died in 
foaling.

1.31 THE HORSE-BREEDERS' HANDBOOK. 



SIR VISTO. 

(the property of the right honourable the earl of ROSEBERY, K.G., 
MENTMORE, LEIGHTON BUZZARD.) 

Will "be located during 1898 and following Seasoiis at the Crafton Stud, Mentmori\ 
Leighton Buzzard, ivheti lie will be let to thirty-five approved mares (besides a few of 
his owner's) at 50gs. each mare and 1 guinea to the Groom. Application to be made to 
Mr. J. Griffiths, as above. Subscription full for 1898. 

Sir Yisto (winner of the " Dual Crown," 1895), by Barcaldine, was bred in 1892 
by the Earl of Rosebery, and is the sixth produce of his dam Vista (also dam of 
Roraima by Town Moor, Glimpse by Foxhall, sent to France covered by Janissary, 
Bona Vista by Bend Or, Velasquez by Donovan, etc.) by Macaroni, bred in 1879, 
also by the Earl of Rosebery. He is a bay, with black points and no white; stands 
16 hands lin. in height, and measures a trifle more than 8in. below the knee, while 
in his formation and general appearance he much resembles his sire Barcaldine, and 
consequently has grown into an exceptionally beautiful horse. Sir Visto made his 
first appearance in the Woodcote Stakes at Epsom in 1894, but being in backward 
condition he was held in no favour for that event, which Saintly, by St. Simon, won 
from McNeil, Pardalo, and six others. Getting time until October, he ran for the 
second and last time as a two-year-old for the Imperial Stakes of 4,309sovs., which 
he won by a short head from Float by Sheen, with Galeottia third, while Royal 
Corrie aud The Nipper were among the remaining fen runners. In 1895 Sir Visto 
ran in six races, and was twice a winner. He commenced by running third to 
Kirkconnel and Laveno for the Two Thousand, having behind him The Lombard 
Raconteur, Speedwell, Tithonus, and Fossiker ; while for the Newmarket Stakes he 
was also third to The Owl by Wisdom aud Solaro by Galopin, while he had behind 
him the winner of the Two Thousand, Butterfly, Oleander, and Lord Roberts. 
He next carried his noble owners colours for the Derby, which, ridden by Sam 
Loates, he won easily from Curzon (second), Kirkconnel (third), Solaro (fourth), 
the rest of the runners comprising Beckhampton, Chibiabos, The Brook, Galopian, 
Laveno, Le Var, The Owl, Raconteur, Salvington, Slow Step, and Villiers. For 
the Princess of Wales' Stakes he was beaten by Le Var, who was getting 161b. from 
him ; but at Doncaster he won the St. Leger easily from Telescope (second), 
Butterfly (third), Utica (fourth), and seven other runners, including Match Maker. 
He subsequently ran for the Jockey Club Stakes, but failed in his attempt to give 
the winner, Laveno, 171b. In 1896 Sir Visto ran five times— unplaced to Love Wisely 
for the Ascot Cup, and to St. Frusquin for the Princess of Wales' Stakes ; second 
to Persimmon for the Jockey Club Stakes ; third to Labrador and Marco for the 
Champion Stakes ; and no place for the Cambridgeshire, attempting to give the 
winner, Winkfield's Pride, 2st. Throughout his whole racing career Sir Visto ran 
a real honest staying horse, and being superbly bred, as may be seen on the opposite 
page, he is bound to have a most successful stud career.

133 THE HORSE-BREEDERS' HANDBOOK. 

SPRINGFIELD. 

(the property of J. H. HOULDSWORTH, ESQ., ROZELLE, AYR.) 

Will he located dunng the Season 1898 at Mr. HovldnwortKs Paddocks, JVewmarket, 
where he will be let to a ftrv ajyjiroved marts (besides those of his omrier's) at 200gs. 
each mare, and 1 guinea to the Groinn. Ajjjjlication to be made to Mr. James Ryan, 
Green Lodge, Newmarket. 

Springfield, by St. Albans (winner of the St. Leger and Chester Cup, 1860), was bred 
in 1873 by Her Majesty, and is the third produce of his dam Viridis by Marsyas, 
bred in 1864 by Mr. Blenkiron. Springfield is a bay, with star in his forehead 
and no other white. His height is 16 hands, and for beauty, symmetry, quality, 
and power he has rarely been excelled. This grand horse was purchased at the sale 
of Her Majesty's yearlings in 1874 by Mr. J. H. Houldsworth, and first ran in the 
following year at York, for the Prince of Wales's Stakes, when he at once stamped 
his excellence by very easily disposing of fourteen smart opponents, including 
Forerunner (second). Hoyden (third), Bardolph, St. Oswald, Belvoir, Seaforth, 
Baroness Clifden, Auguste, Archduke, Humboldt, Lockhart, Seine, etc. After a 
day's interval he next carried his penalty to victory in the Gimcrack Stakes, beating 
Twine the Plaiden, Glendale, BersagUer, and another. His third successive 
triumph was then accomplished at Newmarket, in the First October Two-Year-Old 
Stakes, when he carried home 9st. 61b. several lengths in advance of Geryon, 8st. 101b., 
Bella, Lyons, Area Belle, and Villafranca. Subsequently, in the Cambridgeshire 
week, he only suffered defeat by a head from Clanronald in the Criterion Stakes, 
Farnese, Newport, Pluton, and Algersyfe comprising the remaining runners. In 
the same week Springfield again occupied the same position behind Kisber for 
the Dewhurst Plate (7 fur.), the remainder of the field comprising Glendale 
(third), Ambergris, Madeira, Lovely Thais, Bay Wyndham, Carthusian, King 
Death, Wisdom, Strike, and Colt by Blair Athol— Circe. In 1876, Springfield 
accomplished a succession of victories that stamped him to be a horse of rare 
excellence, as he won the nine races for which he contended, in a style hardly ever 
equalled. The Fern Hill Stakes at Ascot fell to him, beating Rosbach, Kaleidoscope, 
and two others, by four lengths ; and he next secured the New Biennial, on the same 
course, from Concha by six lengths. At Stockbridge he won the Cup from Lowlander 
and two others by three lengths ; and he won the July Cup at Newmarket from Cran 
Tair and another by twelve lengths. At Goodwood, he was opposed only by 
Csesarion for the Bognor Stakes, which, with 25 to 1 on him, he won by three 
lengths ; at Doncaster he won the Bradgate Park Stakes, also against a solitary 
opponent ; and next day he walked over for the Eglinton Stakes. At Newmarket 
Second October Meeting, he walked over for the Select Stakes ; and in the Houghton 
week he won the Derby Three-Year-Old Free Handicap, Across the Flat, in a 
canter, from Gavarni, Advance, and Sailor. As a four-year-old, in 1877, Springfield 
ran in five races, winning all of them. His first victory was achieved at Ascot, 
where he gave 41b. to Ecossais and a good beating, and 1st. to Warrior, who 
finished a bad third ; and two days later, over the same course, he gave weight to Rob 
Roy and Monachus, whom he defeated easily. His next contest was the July Cup 
at Newmarket, when (with 3 to 1 on him) he again easily galloped in ahead of 
Lollypop, Trappist, and Ecossais. His next appearance was in the Champion 
Stakes of 2,816sovs., at Newmarket, for which he beat Silvio (that year's Derby 
winner) by a length, giving 121b., the others including Great Tom (third). Thunder- 
stone, Hesper, Zucchero, and Midlothian. His final victory that year was for the 
All- Aged Stakes at the Newmarket Houghton Meeting, when he beat his solitary 
opponent Ecossais by about half a distance. Nor did this excellent and consistent 
performer again take any part on the racecourse, being reserved for the stud, where 
he has greatly distinguished himself, being the sire of many good winners, among 
whom may be mentioned Battlefield, Briar Root, Cactus, Creeper, Cymbalaria, 
Fretwork, Goldfield, Golden Ray, Greenback, Johnny Morgan, Lang well, Leonora, 
Lizard, Offspring, Ordovix, Primavera, Royal Fern, St. Helen, St. Michael, Shera- 
ton, Shrew, Sorrento, Spot, Springbok, Spring Daisy, Spring Morn, Whin Blossom, 
Alloway, Canute, Haymaker, Juvenal, Pinzon, Ponza, Sanfoin (winner of the 
Derby), Springtime, Verdant Green, Watercress, etc. Springfield's progeny have 
won to date 326 races of the value of £141,952. In Weatherby's Supplement to 
the "Stud Book" for 1897 Springfield is returned as the sire of two foals (now 
yearlings) — a colt and a filly.

SUSPENDER. 

(the property of H. MCCALMONT, esq., M.P., CIIEVELEY park, NEWMARKET.) 

Will he located during 188S and following Seasons at Cheveley Park, Newmarket, rchere 
he will cover a limited number of approved mares (besides a few of his owner's) 
at BOffs. eacJi, and 1 guinea to the Groom. All applicatiojis to be made to Mr. Pen- 
ningtoji, as above. 

Suspender, by Muncaster, -was bred in 1889, by Lord Eosslyn, and is the sixth 
produce of Garterless (also the dam of Cecil by Bend Or, Tights by Timothy, etc.) 
by Knight of the Garter, bred in 1875 by Mr. John Trotter. He is bay with 
star and snip, and his near fore coronet and off hind fetlock white. His height is 
16 hands 2in., he girths 6ft. 5jin., and measures 8|in. below the knee. Suspender 
made his first appearance on a racecourse at the Newmarket Craven Meeting 1891, 
when he won the FitzwilUam Two-Year-Old Plate, beating Acrobat, Pilgrim's 
Progress, Galoche, Euclid, Thistledown, and Wild Jasmine. And at the Newmarket 
Second October Meeting he came out again in winning colours, as he took the 
Severals Plate from St. Odille, Fetteresso, and seven other two-year-olds. In 
1892, when three years old, Suspender ran his third and last race, in which he 
greatly distinguished himself, the speed he showed being quite phenomenal, remind- 
ing one of some of the early performances of the great horse Birdcatcher, from 
whom he is descended. The race was the Royal Hunt Cup at Ascot, the value 
of which was l,240sovs. There were twenty-five runners, and, carrying 7st. 101b., 
he held the lead nearly from the start, and won in a canter, by four lengths from 
High Commissioner (5yrs., 8st. lib.), second, and Stuart (3yrs., 6st. 21b.), third ; 
while among his other opponents whom he beat so easily were Prince Hampton, 
Warlaby, Bel Demonio, Ermak, Huntingdon, Euclid, Breach, and Melody, aU 
•winners of many races. Unfortunately in the race he hit his leg, and never ran 
again. His price at starting was 25 to 1. From the few mares put to Suspender 
in his first season, he is the sire of four winners — viz.. Argosy, winner of the 
Granby Plate of POOsovs. at Newmarket, beating the Khedive, and five others ; 
Yatel, winner of the Twickenham Maiden Plate of 200sov8. at Kempton Park, 
beating Stream of Gold, Royal Mandate, and ten others, including Oceano ; 
Vestalin, winner of the Osmaston Plate of 200sovs. at Derby ; and colt out of 
Parisina, winner of a match at the Bibury Club Meeting.

fetlocks white. His height is 15 hands 3in., girth 5ft. llin., and he measures 
below the knee S^in. Tanzmeister's first appearance on a racecourse was at 
the Bath and Somerset Meeting in 1891, where he very easily appropriated the 
Thirty-eighth Biennial Stakes of 238sovs. from Meyerbeer, Lambeth, and five 
other runners ; but in his second essay at Kempton Park for the Spring Two- Year- 
Old Stakes of 2400sovs., he could only get fourth to Windgall by Galliard, who 
was run to a head by The Snew, with Desdemona third, and nine others beaten 
off. Then on the same course at the Whitsuntide Meeting he divided favouritism 
with Goldfinch, to whom he was giving 101b., for the Whitsuntide Plate, and in 
consequence suffered a half-length defeat, with Glamford a bad third, in front of 
nine other runners. At Ascot in the Thirty-ninth Triennial, Tanzmeister in company 
with St. Damien, Sir Hugo, and three other runners, was very cleverly defeated by 
Polyglot by Bend Or; and at Lewes he finished a good third to Gossoon and Tip Cat 
for the Astley Stakes in a field of fourteen runners, and he wound up the year by 
winning the Michaelmas Stakes of 519sovs. at Sandown Park, beating Senga, 
Pempernickel, and twelve others, among whom were Knockauy and The Lover. In 
1892, when three years old, Tanzmeister ran in nine races, three of which he won, 
and was second three times, and third once. For the Newmarket Biennial he was 
beaten by a neck by Bona Vista, finishing a head in front of Curio, with Platoon a 
good fourth. He then won the Three-Year-Old Biennial at the Bath and Somerset 
Meeting ; and he next took the Kempton Park Biennial, beating Toreador and 
Arcadius. At Ascot, giving 1011). to Watercress for the Prince of Wales Stakes, he 
was beaten by only a short half-length with Pensioner, to whom he was likewise 
giving 101b., a bad third, with nine others, including Bona Vista, scattered all over 
the course ; but at Gat wick he beat Therapia and Versifier for the Machell Stakes 
(Im.) of 565sovs. At Doncaster, Tanzmeister carried 8st. 131b. into the third place 
behind Spring Time (4yrs., 7st. 111b.), and Petard (4yrs., 7st. 61b.), for the Great 
Yorkshire Stakes, a field of eleven being behind him, including Madame Neruda 11. 
(4yrs., 7st. 101b.), and Colorado (4yrs., 8st. 91b.). At Gatwick he was beaten a length 
by Prince Hampton for the Rothschild Stakes (Im.), and for the Cambridgeshire, 
carrying 7st. 121b., he was unplaced to La Fleche (3yrs., 8st. 101b.). In 1893, 
Tanzmeister ran only in the Lincolnshire Handicap, won by Wolf's Crag, in which 
he hit his leg and ran no more. At the stud Tanzmeister has, so far, been too 
sparingly patronised, considering the good form he showed on the racecourse and 
the excellence of his pedigree ; but now that his sire, Saraband, has been sold abroad, 
be will doubtless command the attention of breeders who have mares with blood 
suitable to nick with his. His yearlings and foals hold out every promise of bis 
becoming a successful sire.

^39 7 HE HORSE-BREEDERS' HANDBOOK. 



TARPORLEY. 

(the property of MR. W. M. G. SINGER.) 

Will he located during 1898 and following Seasons at Thealiston Hall Stud, Bedale, 
Yorkshire, where he ivill ie let to a limited number of mares {besides a few of his 
owner'' s) at 25sovs. each, and 1 guinea to the Groom. Apply to Mr. John Mclntyre 
as above. Nearest station, Leeming Lane, N.E.R., 2J miles. Telegraph, Office at 
Londonderry, Yorkshire . 

Tarporley by St. Simon was bred in 1 892 by His Grace the Duke of Westminster, 
and is the fifth produce of his dam Ruth (dam also of Golden Dream by Muncaster, 
Eush by Peter, Orford and Orlet both by Bend Or, Rust by Blue Green, Orpah and 
Orme's Head both by Orme, etc.) by Scottish Chief, bred in 1883 by Mr. William 
Blenkiron. He is a bay horse, 16 hands in height, girths 6ft. 3in., and measures 
Sjin. below the knee, while in appearance he favours Scottish Chief, the sire of his 
dam. Tarporley commenced his short, but distinguished, turf career in 1894, when, 
in rather backward condition, he ran unplaced, together with ten other two-year-olds 
for the Coventry Stakes at the Royal Meeting, won by Whiston by Prism, with 
Saintly second, and Galinne a bad third. On Friday of the same meeting he, 
however, did better, as he won the Windsor Castle Stakes of 637sovs., beating 
Bentworth (second), Mogul (third), Pet of the Chase, Hamiltrude, Chibiabos, and 
Sister Lumley. At Goodwood he won the rich Prince of Wales Stakes of 2,800sovs. 
very easily from Utica (second), Spur Royal (third), Santa Palma, and Cheeky. 
Tarporley next ran for the Middle Park Plate won, a neck, by Speedwell by 
Springfield, 8st. 101b., from Keelson, 9st. (second), Raconteur, 9st. (third), Kirk- 
connel, 9st. 31b. (fourth), with Tarporley, 9st. 31b., next in front of Cayenne, 
Master Minting, Caenlochan, Missive, and Gas ; and he wound up the season at 
Manchester by running third to Newsmonger by Saraband, and Briardale, giving 
the winner 131b., and the second 201b., for the Great Lancashire Produce Stakes, 
having behind him The Nipper, Utica, Galeottia, and three others. With this race 
terminated the turf career of this fine horse, as he subsequently injured his near 
foreleg and had to be thrown up ; but he has been recently examined by Mr. George 
Williams, M.R.C.V.S., and certified sound in every respect other than the injured 
limb. For both the past seasons, 1896 and 1897, he had a full list of approved 
mares, nearly all being dams of good winners. In Weatherbys Supplement to the 
"Stud Book" for 1897 Tarporley is returned as the sire of four colts and four 
fillies (now yearlings), all of whom are exceptionally promising.

TORPEDO (Irish). 

(the property of M. a. MAHER, ESQ., BALLINKEELE, ENNISCORTHY, IRELAND.) 

Will ie located during 1898 and following Seasons at Ballinheele, Enniscorthy, County 
Wexford, Ireland, where he rcill cover a limited number of approved mares, this Season 
at \Qsovs., and lO*. to the Groom. Apply to the Stud Groom, as above. 

Torpedo, by Gunboat, was bred in 1876 by Mr. Thomas Whitney, a farmer in 
County Wexford, Ireland, and is the second produce of his dam (also dam of Pin- 
nace and Minute Gun, both by Gunboat). He is a rich bay brown, and bears 
almost a twin likeness to his distinguished relation, Cabin Boy, standing 15 hands 
3in., with deep girth and great bone. Torpedo, who was not trained until four years 
old, commenced his turf career in July 1880, at Tramore, a favourite watering place 
in County Waterford, where, in the colours of his breeder Mr. Whitney, he won the 
Amateur Hunters' Hurdle Race of SOsovs., in a canter, from a large field ; and this 
success he followed up in August, at Galway, by winning the Moyode Plate of 
80sovs., a Hunters' Steeplechase (2|m.), beating a field of ten horses, including 
Enigma, Pickpocket (afterwards Lord Chancellor), New Meadow, Lady Mary II., 
and Scorn — all good performers subsequently in England. After winning this race 
Mr. Maher had the good fortune to buy Torpedo for 300gs,, and he ran his third 
race at the Liverpool Autumn Meeting in the same year — viz., for the Aintree 
Hunt Steeplechase, won by Captain Machell's Review, in which race he was knocked 
over by another laorse swerving against him at a fence. Torpedo's next effort 
during the same year was made at Croydon for the November Hunters' Flat Race 
of 200sovs., for which, ridden by Mr. Humble, he ran a good third to Rocket and 
Spendthrift, having a field of six horses behind him. At Bromley better fortune 
attended him, as he won the Kent County Cup, value 70sovs., in a canter, from 
Rathcline (second) and three others ; and this victory he followed up at Sandown 
Park in December by winning the Ladies' Plate of lOOsovs. (3m.), beating Cross 
Question and four others in a canter. In 1881 Torpedo was again first seen in 
public at Sandown Park in the April Meeting, when he easily appropriated the 
County Hurdle Handicap of lOsovs. each, with 200 added, from Tamar, Adamite, 
Northfleet, Albania, Milkmaid, and Prospectus. At the same meeting Torpedo 
started favourite for the Grand International Handicap of 30sovs., with 500sovs. 
added (4m.). This event was contested by seven of the best steeplechase horses of 
the day, including two Grand National winners, and when half the distance had 
been accomplished Torpedo, owing to blundering at one of the fences, lost fully a 
quarter of a mile, but when righted made up his lost ground in a manner that only 
a horse possessed of great speed and thorough gameness could have done, and but 
for being unable to get through at the close of the contest in time, would have 
beaten Regal to a certainty, as the latter won by only a neck. This race may 
be said to be Torpedo's last performance, for, having hit one of his back tendons 
shortly after, he did not appear again upon a racecourse for two years, when, in 
April 1883, being only half fit, he ran in the Prince of Wales' Steeplechase at 
Punchestown, but was beaten for want of condition. Torpedo was then got 
thoroughly fit for the great Auteuil Steeplechase and Hurdle Race at Paris, in the 
former of which Frigate was also engaged. The week before the Auteuil Meeting 
both were tried over the Baldoyle Steeplechase course. Torpedo was then ridden 
by Frank Wynne, giving the mare 101b., which he appeared to be quite able to do 
for two miles and a half of the journey, when he split his pastern so badly that he 
could never be trained again. Torpedo was in the following year put to the stud, 
and considering that he got hardly any thoroughbred mares, save a few of his 
owner's, until the last couple of years, he has been a wonderfnlly successful sire, a 
large number of steeplechase winners having been got by him, besides two winners 
of the Irish Derby (Kentish Fire and Bowline), and Detonator, winner of the 
Waterford Testimonial Stakes at the Curragh, besides several Queen's Plates and 
handicaps on the flat ; while it may be stated, in the interest of English breeders. 
Torpedo is also the sire of Midshipmite. In fact, everything got by him can galjop 
and stay, which is the great desideratum of the present day. Torpedo's progeny, 
equally distinguished on the flat and over the country, have won, in 1897, consider- 
ably over £3,500 in stakes.

TYRANT. 

(the PKOPERTY of a. M. singer, ESQ., REDWOKTH, TOTNES, SOUTH DEVON.) 

WMl he located at Tlwahxton Hall Stnd, Bedale, YorTis., dririyig 1898, and following 
Seasons, cohere he ivill he limited to ten ajjproved mares (besides a few of his owner-'s) 
at aOsovs. each, and 1 guinea to the Grootn. All ap2)lications to he made to Mr. John 
Mclntyre, as above. 

Tyrant, by Beauclerc, was bred in 1885 by Mr. A. Mclntyre, and is the first pro- 
duce of Queen of the Meadows (also the dam of Queen Berengaria by Rosicruciau, 
Meadow Sweet by Charibert, and Wherwell by Fullerton) by Exminster (New- 
minster's youngest son), bred in 1877 by Mr. A. Mclntyre. Like his sire. Tyrant is 
a rich bay with black legs, standing 16 hands high, while he girths 6ft. 4in., and 
measures 8|in. below the knee. This grand horse took so long a time to mature 
that it was only in his fifth year that he showed his true form, which was brilliant 
in the extreme. In 1887, when two years old, Tyrant contended in seven races, in 
six of which he was unplaced, but wound up the season successfully at the Man- 
chester November Meeting by winning the Eglinton Nursery Handicap, beating 
Lady Hilda, Lady Rosebery, and seven other two-year-olds. In 1888 he was 
unplaced in four races ; and in 1889, after having run unplaced behind Queen 
Anne, Osmunda, and Grecian Bend, for the Great Welcomes Handicap at Croydon, 
Tyrant was seen no more on the racecourse that year. The good effects of this 
treatment was shown in 1890, when he won seven of the nine races for which he 
contended. Tyrant commenced at the Newmarket First Spring Meeting by 
winning the Third "Welter Handicap, on the Rowley mile, from Snaplock, Ham, 
and eleven others. His next appearance was on the Rodee, where he won the 
Chester Cup of 935sovs. by four lengths from Vasistas, Silver Spur, Padua, Lily of 
Lumley, Robin Hood, Armada, St. Benedict, Mounteagle, and Benbow. This great 
victory he achieved so easily that the day but one afterwards he won the Great 
Cheshire Handicap just as easily, beating Father Confessor, Theosophist, Aperse, 
and Horton. This series of good performances caused Mr. A. M. Singer to buy 
Tyrant for 4,000gs., and in his colours he won the Great Northern Handicap on the 
Knavesmire, beating St. Benedict, Fallow Chat, etc. ; and, going on to Doncaster, 
the Spring Handicap of 925sovs. fell to him without an effort, beating Shillelagh, 
Nunthorpe, L'Abbesse de Jouarre, Dazzle, and nine others. On his return to tLe- 
south, Tyrant effected his greatest victory at Ascot for the Gold Vase, which he 
won, carrying 9st. 41b., by a length and a half from L'Abbesse de Jouarre, Golden 
Maze, Gonsalvo. and Reve d'Or. At Carlisle Tyrant was defeated by Barmecide for 
the Cumberland Plate, owing to a false start ; and at York he was beaten by Silver 
Spur for the Great Ebor Handicap ; but be wound up the year and terminated his 
turf career in flying colours at Doncaster by winning the cup easily from Padua 
and Barmecide. In 1891 Tyrant was put to the stud at Totnes, in Devonshire, 
where he covered a few of Mr. Singer's mares, with the result of getting four 
winners — Flore, Telescope, Tyrian, and Virago — who last year took six prizes of 
the value of l,G96sovs. In Weatherhij s Supplement to the '' Stud Book " for 1897, 
Tyrant is returned as the sire of thirty-one foals (now yearlings)— fourteen colts 
and sixteen fillies, two of which (both fillies) are dead, besides another whose sex 
is not given ; and it may here be noted that Tyrant's dam. Queen of the Meadows, 
is a great granddaughter of Alice Hawthorn on her dam's side, and of Beeswing on 
her sire's ; and she is also a granddaughter of Stockings, the dam of Donovan, 
Semolina, and Raeburn.

145 THE HORSE-BREEDERS' HANDBOOK. 



VICTOR WILD. 

(TUE property of MR. T. WORTON.) 

Will he located during 1898 and following Seasons at Lordship Stud Farm, near 
Newmarket, where he toill be let to a limited numiber of approved mares (besides a 
few of his owner's') at \Ogs. each mare, and 1 guinea to the Groom. Subscription full 
for 1898, but they may now be booked for 1899, All siibscrijftions to be taken of 
Messrs. Weatherby, 6, Old Burlington Street, London, W. 

Victor Wild, by Albert Victor, was bred in 1890 by Mr. A. W. Mostjoi Owen, 
and is the third produce of his dam Wild Huntress (also dam of Par by Quits, 
Grimpo by Cardinal York, Wild Victress by Albert Victor, etc.) by Remorse, bred 
in 1879 by Sir Charles Coote, Bart., in Ireland. He is a chestnut with blaze face, 
and off fore-fetlock white to a little above the joint, while he has a near hind white 
stocking, and his off hind heel white. He stands 16 hands |in. in height, girths 6ft., 
and measures 8in. below the knee. In formation Victor Wild is an especially 
lengthy horse, with great reach and power. His head is beautiful, attached to a 
great length of rein, his neck being of remarkable strength, particularly where it is 
set into his shoulders, which are finely formed. His career on the racecourse 
commenced in 1892 at Hurst Park by running second in a field of fifteen runners 
for the Durham Selling Plate, won by Dromonby by Esterling, who was subse- 
quently bought in for 610gs. ; and he next won the Brockhurst Plate, at Portsmouth 
Park, where Mr. T. Whorton had the good fortune to buy him at auction for 330gs. 
This he soon got back by winning the Nursery Handicap of 500sovs. at Leicester, 
beating Batty by Tibthorpe, Troilus II. by Trapfeze, and eight others. At Gatwick, 
Dromonby, with a pull of 211b., beat him for the Lowfield Nursery ; and he ran 
also unplaced for the Osmaston Nursery at Derby, won by Pergamos by Ollerton. 
In 1893 Victor Wild ran in eleven races, six of which he won ; but owing to limited 
space it can only be stated his principal victories were for the September Handicap 
of 435sovs. (Im.), at Leicester, beating President, Sprightly, Melford, and four 
others ; and the Hurst Park Club Cup (Im.), which, carrying 7st. 71b., he won from 
Dornroschen (3yrs., 8st. 21b.), Admiral Benbow (aged, 6st. Ulb.), and nine others. 
During Victor Wild's four-year-old career, in 1894, he ran in seven races, two of 
which he won. He appropriated the Eoyal Hunt Cup, carrying 7st. 71b., beating 
Avington (4yrs., 9st. 21b.), second, Maunday Money (3yrs., 7st.), third, and twenty^ 
others ; and a little later, carrying 8st. 51b., he achieved a still greater victory for 
the Summer Handicap of 2,000sovs. at Hurst Park, beating Dornroschen (4yrs., 
7st. 21b.), Florizel II. (3yrs., 6st. 51b.), and seven others. When five years old, in 1895, 
he only ran in three races, two of which he won — viz., the Great Jubilee Stakes of 
2,650sovs., carrying 8st., with Grey Leg (4yrs., 8st. 21b.), second, and El Diablo 
(6yrs., 78t. 121b.), third ; and he next took the Subscription Stakes of 500sovs. on the 
Bretby course (5fur.), at Newmarket, beating Helm, Grig, Speed, Bentworth, and 
the Lombard ; while in the race for which he was defeated, the Hunt Cup, he 
carried 9st. 61b. into the second place, behind Cloraine (4yrs., 8st. 111b.), having 
behind him a field of eighteen runners. In 1896, he won the Great Jubilee Stakes 
for the second time, carrying 9st. 71b., Kilcock (4yrs., 6st. 121b.), second, The 
Lombard (4yrs., 7st. 31b.), third, and twelve other runners. At Ascot he ran 
unplaced to Love Wisely for the Ascot Gold Cup ; nor later on at Paris did he do any 
better for the Prix Municipal, won by Omnium II. ; while he ran hia last race, 
carrying 9st. 91b., for the Cambridgeshire, unplaced to Winkfield's Pride (3yrs., 
est. 101b.).

WHITTIER. 

(the property of JAMES RUSSEL, ESQ., SOMERVILLE LODGE, NEWMARKET.) 

Will he located during 1898 and following seasojis at Theakston Hall Stud, Bedale, 
Yorkshire, where he will be let to ten approved mares at iOgs. each mare and Isov. to 
the Groom. Mares proving barren will be taken next season free, Leeming Lane 
Station, N.E.R., 2 J miles. Telegraph Office at Londonderry, Yorkshire. Porter- 
age, 6d. 

Whittier by Laureate (winner of the Cambridgeshire and many other races) was 
bred in 1892 by his owner, Mr. J. Russel, and is the third produce of his dam 
Virginia Shore (also dam of Shoreham by Galliard, sent to South America, and Lady 
Minting^by Minting, etc.), by John Davis, bred in 1885 by Mr. C. D. Roso. Whittier 
is an exceedingly handsome brown horse with a small star and no other white mark- 
ing. His height is 15 hands 3in., girth 6ft., and he measures Sjin. below the 
knee, is well balanced and true shaped, with splendid action. He ran his first race 
in 1894 at Stockbridge, second to Hopbine by Despair, beaten by a head only, while 
he had behind him Match Maker, Curzon, Cayenne, Anlaf, and three others. His 
next race was at the York August Meeting for the Prince of Wales' Plate of 
lOOOsovs., and starting a hot favourite at 6 to 5, he won by three lengths, beating 
Nighean (second), Featherstone (third), and seven others, among whom were The 
Owl and Bonspiel ; and this success he followed up the day after by winning the 
Convivial Produce Stakes of 550sovs. from Keelson (second), Marco (third), and 
eight others. His last race, when two years old, was run at Newmarket for the 
Challenge Plate of SOOsovs. (5f ur.), which, carrying 7st. 71b., he won easily from 
Woolsthorpe (6 yrs., 8st. 121b.), Amandier (6 yrs., 9st. 61b.), and three others. In 
1895 Whittier ran in three races only, two of which he won. At Newmarket First 
Spring he beat Best Man, Marco, Stonenell, and Lynwood, by four lengths, for the 
March Stakes of 490sovs. ; and he next appropriated the Epsom Grand Prize of 
1875sovs., for which he was only opposed by Powick, whom with 30 to 1 betted on 
him he very easily defeated. At Sandown Park Whittier started favourite for the 
Eclipse Stakes, but was beaten easily by the French three-year-old Le Justicier by 
Le Sancy, the other runners comprising None the Wiser (third), Farndale, Troon, 
Solaro, Colt by Hampton, Bella Agnes, and Le Var, who broke down. In 1896 
Whittier ran also only in three races, for all which he was defeated, the exigencies 
of training having begun to tell against him. For the Jubilee Stakes at Kempton 
Park Victor Wild beat him ; and in company with Sir Visto and Marco he was 
defeated by Labrador for the Champion Stakes at Newmarket ; while Kilcock, also 
at the headquarters of the turf effected his overthrow in company with Grig, 
Stewarton, and Sweet Auburn for the Challenge Plate of SOOsovs., Bretby Stakes 
course. He was trained throughout by Mr. James Waugh, and is believed by him 
to be the best horse he ever trained.

WINDGALL. 

(the property of captain J. H. GREER, CROTANSTOWN, NEWBRIDGE, CO. KILDARE.) 
Will he located during 1898 and the folloiv/ng Seawm, at Browmtown Hottge Stud Farm, 
Curragh, co. KUdare, Ireland, lohere he will cover a limited number of mares 
{inchiding a few of hi a owner's) at 2ogs. each, and 1 guinea to the Groovi. Apply to 
the Stud Groom as above. 
WiNDGALL, by Galliard, was bred in 1889 by Mr. T. Phillips, and is the second 
produce of Windsor (dam also of Anne Page, by Tibthorpe, etc.) by Hermit, bred 
in 1877 by the Glasgow Stud. He is a bay horse of great power, and full of 
quaUty, is 16J hands high, while he girths 6ft. 4^in., and measures 8|in. below the 
knee. Windgall had a most distinguished turf career, commencing in 1891, when 
two years old. In that year he contested seven races, two of which he won, and 
was second in three others. At the Kempton Park May Meeting he won the Two- 
year-old Plate of 2684sovs., beating The Smew and eleven other smart opponents, 
including Desdemona, Tanzmeister, Bushey Park, Bouthillier, Fetlar, Dainty, and 
Le Chesnay, Avhile he achieved his second victory at the Newmarket Spring Meet- 
ing for the Breeders' Plate of 485sovs., for which, carrying 9st., he beat Le 
Chesnay (8st. 121b.), Golden Arrow (8st. 121b.), Lambent (8st. 61b.), Ccelus, and 
four others. His other contests comprised the John O'Gaunt Plate of 500sovs. at 
the Manchester May Meeting, for which he ran second, carrying 9st. 61b., to El 
Diablo (8st. 81b.), with Chibbie (8st. 61b.) third. Our Sarah fourth. Rondo, and 
three others ; the Windsor Castle Stakes at Ascot, when, carrying 9st. 31b., he ran 
second to Lorette (9st.), Whisperer (8st. 101b.) third, among the field behind 
him being Gold Crest (8st. 71b.), Dusk (8st. 71b.), etc. ; the Stud Produce 
Stakes at Newmarket July Meeting, for which, carrying 9st. 101b., he ran second 
to St. Damien (9st.), with Shining Star (8st. 111b.) third, while among the other 
runners were Esmond, H} eres, and Somersault. And Windgall further distinguished 
himself for the National Breeders' Produce Stakes at the Sandown Park Second 
Summer Meeting by running a good fourth in a large field to Lady Caroline, Lady 
Hermit, and Pensioner. When three years old, in 1892, Windgall ran in eight races, 
two of which he won — viz., the Newmarket October Handicap of 885sovs., carrying 
8st., beating His Honour (3yrs., 6st. 101b.), ThessaHan (3yrs., 8st. 31b.), Middleham 
(3yrs., 7st. 21b.), the others including Miss Dollar (6yrs., 9st.), Mark Price (5yrs., 
8st. lib.), Whisperer (3yrs., 8st. lib.). Lover (3yrs., 8st. 81b.), and Mavoureen (4yrs., 
6st. 111b.) ; and the Liverpool Autumn Cup, of 1075sovs., (Im. 3fur.), for which, 
carrying 8st. 21b., he beat Ermak (4yrs., 8st. 51b.), Lady Rosebery (aged, 9st. lib.), 
Lauriscope (3yrs., 7st. 31b.), Friar John (3yrs., 6st. 41b.), Miss Dollar (6yrs., 
Sst. 91b.), Father Confessor (aged, 7st. 71b.), Comedy (4yrs., 8st. 91b.), Simonian 
(4yrs., 7st. 121b.), and six others. The other races in which Windgall took part 
included the Kempton Jubilee Stakes, won by Euclid, and the Wokingham Stakes 
at Ascot, won by Hildebert, for neither of which he was placed ; the Leicester- 
shire Royal Handicap, for which he ran second, carrying 8<t. 31b., to Rusticus 
(6yrs., 8st. lib.), Worldly Wise (4yrs., Sst. 31b.) being third, while among the beaten 
division were Stuart (3yrs., 7st. 41b.), Warlaby (aged, 8st. 61b.), Galeopsis (3yrs., 
8st. 21b.), Chater(3yrs.,7st.), Dare Devil (4yrs., Sst. 51b.), Acrobat (3yrs.,7st. 101b.), 
Bumptious (4yrs., 8st. 51b.), and eleven others ; the Duke of York Stakes, for 
which he ran fourth in a large and good field, carrying 7st. lUb., to Miss Dollar 
(6yrs., Sst. 21b.), Sabra (.Syrs., 6st.), and Prince Hampton (4yrs., Sst. 31b.) ; and the Old 
Cambridgeshire Handicap, for which, carrying 8st., he ran Pensioner (3yr8., 6st. 41b.) 
to a head, among the other runners being Thessalian (3yrs., 7st. 101b.), Orontes 
(3yrs., 6st. 21b.), Buccaneer (4yrs., 9st. 71b.), and Coromandel (5yrs., 6st. 101b.). 
These performances of Windgall were of very great merit, though, on the whole, 
unfortunate ; but in 1893, although he only ran on two occasions, he showed in one 
of them still higher form — viz., for the City and Suburban, when, carrying 8st. 91b., 
he ran King Charles (4yrs., 6st. 61b.) to a head, behind him being Lady Hermit 
(4yrs., 7st. 31b.), Chater (4yrs., 7st.), Mervyn (aged, Sst. lib.). Progression (4yrs., 
6st. 121b.), Jodel (6yrs., 6st. 121b.), Mina (6yrs., 6st. 121b.), Crystabelle (4yrs., 
78t.), besides six others. His second appearance was for the March Stakes, for 
which, as might be expected, he failed to carry the heavy burden of 9st. 71b. suc- 
cessfully agamst the crack three-year-old Marcion (7st. 101b.). Nor was Windgall 
destined to distinguish himself further on the racecourse, for he only ran once 
the following year, 1894 — viz., in the Lincolnshire Handicap, for which, carrying 
9st., he was beaten by Le Nicham (4yrs., 8.st. 71b.). Captain Greer bought him for 
IjOOOgs. The " Stud Book " return for 1897 credits Windgall with being the sire of 
seven colts and four fillies, one of the former of whom is dead.

WINKFIELD. 

(the property of JOHN C. SULLIVAN, ESQ., BEDFORD PLACE, NAVAN, 
CO. MEATH, IRELAND.) 

Will he located dunng 1898 and following Seasons at Kilherry Stud Farm, Co. Meath, 
three miles from Navan Station, G.N.R., and half-a-mile from Gibbstown Station, 
M.G.W.B., ivhere he tvill be let to a limited number of approved mares (besides a 

few of his owner's) at Sogs. each mai'c, and 10s. to the Groom. Application to be 
made, as above, to the owner, Mr. J. C. Sullivan, who has taken a subscription to the 
Irish National Produce Stakes for 1901 /or Winkfield ; and likewise for Milner, 

full brother to Bassetlaw (winner of several valuable stakes in America) by St. Simon 
— Marquesa by Blair Athol, icho also stands at Kilberry at a fee of ligs. 

Winkfield (full brother to Morion) by Barcaldine was bred in 1885 by Lord 
Hartington (now Duke of Devonshire), and is the fourth produce of Rosicrucian's 
full sister Chaplet (dam also of Libation by Cremorne, Penance by Hermit, Morion 
and Snood both by Barcaldine, Mortier by Sir Kenneth, Bayolia by Friar's Balsam, 
etc.) by Beadsman, bred in 1872 by Sir Joseph Hawley. He is a remarkably hand- 
some liver chestnut horse, with blaze face, and some white on both hind and off 
fore legs. His height is 15 hands 3in., he girths 6ft. 6in., and measures almost 
9in. below the knee. He stands on the shortest legs, covers a lot of ground, is 
built on the most powerful lines, with great bone and quality, and has most 
perfect action, an excellent temper, and is sound in every respect. Being a 
green, overgrown colt, Winkfield's first appearance on the turf was deferred 
until 1888, when thr'^'.e years old ; the race selected for his debut being the Town 
Plate of lOOgs. at the Epsom Summer Meeting. For this event he started favourite 
at 3 to 1 in a field of ten runners, but, ndilen by T. Loates, he failed to finish in the 
first three, tne race falling to Sweet Alice by Zealot, with Zigzag second, and Rosy 
Morn third. His second effort was at the Newmarket July IVleeting, when he again 
started favourite for a Handicap Plate of 123sovs., New T.Y.C., for which he had 
no better fortune, but ran close up with the three placed horses — Noble Chieftain, 
Franciscan, and Druidess — in a field of twelve runners. But in his next effort, at 
the back of the Ditch, he carried Lord Hartington's colours into the third place 
behind Franciscan by Hermit, and Fabiola, having behind him Dolores, Cymbalaria, 
The Mummer, Stars and Stripes, and Sly. At Yarmouth he was again favourite 
for the Yare Handicap, but getting off badly was beaten by Countess Therry by 
Barcaldine ; nor did any better fortune attend his next efibrt for the Drayton High- 
weight Handicap at Goodwood, won by Castleknock by Philammon. Winkfield's 
next effort was made at Brighton, carrying 7st., for the Ovingdean Plate, 6fur., 
which he won easily from the Jesuit (4yrs., 7st. 121b.), Tommy Upton (5yrs., 
8st. 71b.), and three others, including Gallinule (4yrs., 9st. r21b.), who divided 
favouritism with the winner ; and he also earned a winning bracket for the next 
race he contested, a Selling Plate of lOOgs., at Newmarket, which he won easily 
from Pippin (3yrs.), second, Hazlewood (4yrs.), and seven others, and was bought 
at auction for 400gs. by Mr. W. Blake. The latter gentleman's colours he subse- 
quently carried to victory at Aintree for the County Stand Plate of lOOgs., 5fur.^ 
beating Coolshannah (second), Bitter Sweet (third), and six others ; and for the 
Aintree Feather Plate he was second to Lente by Jock of Oran, with five other 
runners behind him ; while he ran his last race at Derby, behind Jezreel by 
Beauclerc, for the Breadsall Plate, after which he was claimed by Mr. Collins, and 
soon after became the property of his present owner. At the stud his success has 
been phenomenal, as he is the sire of Winkfield's Pride (winner of the Cambridge- 
shire, Lincoln Handicap, Doncaster Cup, Prix de Conseil Municipal at Paris, etc.), 
Kilberry, Belle Lena, Field Day, Master Winkfield, Worker, Winkfield's Dower, 
Witness, Bonny Winkfield, Green Tea, and several other winners. In 1897 eight 
of Winkfield's stock won twenty races worth 9,014sovs.
